The Palms is Offering Complimentary On-Site Testing to Accommodate U.S. CDC Requirements
The Hartling Group resorts are pleased that the Turks & Caicos has exponentially increased its COVID-19 testing sites in response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new order. The CDC’s updated requirements, which went into effect on January 26, 2021, mandates all air passengers arriving to the United States from a foreign country must be tested no more than three days prior to entry to the United States and present negative results prior to boarding their flights.
Both The Palms and The Shore Club have designated rapid-testing locations within the resort grounds, while guests of The Sands will utilize the facilities at The Palms Resort. Testing is complimentary for all paying resort guests at The Shore Club and The Palms, and Sands guests for $25. Tests will also be available to non-guests for a nominal fee of $50 per person, with appointments required. Hartling Group resorts are working in collaboration with Flamingo Pharmacy, who will be overseeing the testing operations at each resort.
The Hartling Group has worked closely with The Government of the Turks and Caicos Islands and other private sector partners to ensure a smooth roll out and can confirm that the destination has well above the capacity to meet the current testing load for visitors and residents alike.
In addition to the CDC’s rules for testing prior to flying to the US, the Turks and Caicos Islands requires all visitors to be vaccinated. See details. The Turks and Caicos government also requires that all arriving guests have valid Travel Insurance that covers COVID-19 related medical treatment, quarantine costs and medivac costs.
