  1. Unless you have a different source - this is from the official site. Source: https://tahititourisme.com/en-us/covid-19/ You do not need to be vaccinated if you spent the last 15 days in: "France and French territories (except Guyana), United Kingdom or countries listed as “green” (including United States and Canada)." Green Countries are : “Green” countries / territories: countries / territories in which no active circulation of the virus is observed and no variants of concern have been identified. These are the countries of the European area, to which are added Albania, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Bahrain, Bosnia, Brunei, Canada, the Comoros, South Korea, the States United, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kosovo, Lebanon, North Macedonia, Montenegro, New Zealand, Serbia, Singapore, Taiwan, Ukraine and Vanuatu."
  2. better check the headlines. SCOTUS sent that case back to the appeals court and they just ruled against the CDC.
  3. I posted in another thread. There is another option. It is $70 for two tests. It is on the united site under testing to return to the USA. You buy the test in the USA. Bring it with you. You do the test in your room. https://www.united.com/ual/en/us/fly/travel/covid-testing.html#provider (Look under return flights to the USA, and click the link for a two pack.) It is FDA approved AND can be used to get back into the USA.
  4. There are tests that you can buy in the US take them on your trip AND do the test when you are ready to back home. https://store.optum.com/shop/products/abbott-binaxNOW-COVID-19-ag-at-home-test-kit-2-pack?utm_source=united&utm_medium=referral&utm_term=&utm_content=2-pack&utm_campaign=travel_ready_covid_test&utm_nooverride=1 These tests are accepted to get back into the USA. It is $70 for two tests. They are convient and you can do the test in your room. They are available on the United site here also - https://www.united.com/ual/en/us/fly/travel/covid-testing.html#provider
  5. If you test positive you will be in Barbados until you are cleared to fly by a doctor OR you test negative. Some resorts like Sandals are including insurance as part of the stay. If you have few extra days, this might be worth while, and might give you the security that you will be taken care of. The other options are to self insure and just book a place to stay if you test positive OR go home on private transportation AND/OR possibly buy medjet assist to get you back home if it gets serious.
  6. If unvaccinated passengers are not allowed, I think it naturally follows that the passengers should be kept away from unvaccinated local populations as well. I believe it is about being the "safest". I think the article in Travel Weekly was done to promote Windstar's "extra "safety and attract people that want the extra safety. Immunocompromised people that have been vaccinated are at much higher risk compared to the normal vaccinated populations as they have a have a much lower immune response by comparison. Seems like Windstar is trying to attract that population. I have plenty of friends that still wear masks and want as much safety as possible.
