Puerto Rico COVID-19, Coronavirus Update

We understand this is a critical time in the world with this pandemic going on { coronovirus ( COVID-19 ) }. Puerto Rico has also been affected in many ways just like all places around the world. Small businesses and restaurants have been slowly opening up to get back upping Puerto Rico’s booming economy as of Summer 2020.

Puerto Rico has been a moderately isolated area with strict curfew rules to regulate the spread of this virus. Social distancing in all outside situations has also been taken very seriously. Masks are mandatory in many places and most businesses sanitize and temperature check you before you are allowed to enter their facilities.

As we enter into a cooler season for Puerto Rico, the island is opening up more and more for all people to be safe and travel but also have a great experience on vacation, business, and meeting up with family.

Traveling to Puerto Rico During COVID-19 2020

What to expect

Island Arrival

  • To further safeguard residents and visitors, all arriving passengers must comply with the following measures before arriving to Puerto Rico:
    • Complete an online Travel Declaration Form from the Puerto Rico Health Department, which can be accessed at www.travelsafe.pr.gov or www.viajaseguro.pr.gov. Kiosks at the airport are also available for travelers to fill out the form upon arrival, as it is a requirement to exit the airport.
    • Demonstrate a negative molecular COVID-19 test result (which consists of a nasal or throat swab), taken no more than 72 hours prior. Testing sites on the mainland U.S. can be found here. It is highly recommended to get tested prior to arriving on the Island given limited resources. 
    • Obtain Airport Exit Confirmation number and QR Code, which travelers will automatically receive when uploading their molecular test results to the Puerto Rico Health Department’s online portal.
  • Airport Processes:
    • The Puerto Rico National Guard is assisting with enhanced health screenings of all arriving passengers at the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, where all passenger flights are currently being diverted. Face masks are mandatory.
    • All arriving travelers will be pre-screened via thermographic cameras to monitor temperatures, and enhanced protocols will take place at baggage claim before exiting the airport.

Asymptomatic Traveler (person who doesn’t present COVID-19 related symptoms)

  • If an asymptomatic traveler (a person who doesn’t present COVID-19 symptoms) arrives on the Island with a complete Travel Declaration Form, a negative molecular COVID-19 test result, and an Airport Exit Confirmation number and QR Code, the traveler can proceed with their trip. 
  • If an asymptomatic traveler (a person who doesn’t present any symptoms) arrives on the Island with a complete Travel Declaration Form, but is awaiting the molecular COVID-19 test result taken no more than 72 hours prior, the traveler is required to quarantine for 14 days or until test results are provided digitally to the Puerto Rico Health Department. 
    • If the molecular test result is negative, the 14-day quarantine will be lifted. 
    • If the molecular test result is positive, the traveler must isolate and seek medical attention. Travelers placed in isolation will be responsible for covering their own medical expenses/extended stay.
  • If an asymptomatic traveler (a person who doesn’t present any symptoms) arrives on the Island with a complete Travel Declaration Form, but without a negative molecular COVID-19 test result and is not awaiting results, a Testing Authorization Voucher will be provided for the traveler to get tested locally. A list of testing sites on-island will be provided at the airport and can also be found here
    • While awaiting results, the traveler will need to quarantine for 14 days at their lodging property, cover COVID-19 testing fee, and possible extended stay. 
      • If the on-Island molecular test result is negative, the quarantine will be lifted. 
      • If the on-Island molecular test result is positive, the traveler must isolate and seek medical attention. Travelers placed in isolation will be responsible for covering their own medical expenses/extended stay.
      • If the traveler chooses to not take a molecular COVID-19 test on the Island, they must quarantine for 14 days and cover their own extended stay.

Symptomatic traveler (person who is displaying COVID-19 related symptoms)

  • If a symptomatic traveler (a person who is displaying COVID-19 related symptoms) arrives on the Island, the Puerto Rico National Guard will conduct a rapid COVID-19 test at the airport (which consists of a finger prick blood test). Even if the test result is negative, it will be mandatory for the traveler to quarantine and cover their own medical expenses/possible extended stay as rapid COVID-19 tests can sometimes yield false results. The quarantine is mandated until the traveler digitally uploads proof of a negative molecular COVID-19 test result taken on-Island to the Puerto Rico Health Department’s online portal. 
    • A list of testing sites in Puerto Rico will be available at the airport and can also be found here.
    • If a negative molecular test is not provided, the traveler will be required to quarantine for 14 days, or the length of their stay. 
  • If the rapid COVID-19 test (which consists of a finger prick blood test) conducted at the airport results are positive, the traveler will get a molecular COVID-19 test on-site
    • While the traveler awaits the results, they must isolate themselves at their lodging property
      • If the molecular test is negative, the quarantine will be lifted. 
      • If the molecular test is positive, the traveler will continue to isolate and seek medical attention at the traveler’s expense.
