Travel In The COVID World of 2020
I flew from BWI to PAP on Sunday August 9th. The airport was not as busy as usual, and as a result things went quickly and smoothly. Checking in was normal...except for masks. Security was normal...except for masks. Waiting was normal...except for masks.
The flights were full, but by God's grace I had an empty seat beside me on both flights. There was no drink/snack service on either flight. Miami's airport seemed normal, though I was there for only about 30 minutes.
The airport in Port-au-Prince was close to normal. While waiting in line for customs, a group of 3 ladies were pointing a thermometer at the heads of travelers. I saw no one that was called aside. We all came through with no delay. After customs, a gentleman in street clothes standing by himself was asking (some) passengers for their Covid tests? I said I had none. He asked to see my Passport and copied down my last name...nothing more. He waved me on ahead. I saw no one who actually presented proof of a test.
I did receive a tiny card on which some instructions are printed in 4 languages. It tells me to carry the card in my wallet and take it to the hospital with me if I get sick.
I feel great now four days after travel.
