We have exactly three weeks left before we return to the Philippines, and we’re trying to stay as careful as possible because of the logistics involved with international air travel. My mom’s friend came from Korea to attend her niece’s wedding in the US, but she caught covid before the wedding so she couldn’t attend. The rest of her family returned to Korea after the wedding — she was the only one who tested positive — while she is still currently in quarantine in the US. Once she returns to Korea, she has to complete another 2 week quarantine. Traveling in the time of covid is no joke! If any of us caught covid before our flight, that would mean rescheduling rt-pcr tests for our entire family, as well as rescheduling our international flight, our quarantine hotel, and our domestic flight to our island. I don’t want to travel again via air for a long time!
