Comfort Suites Paradise Island has announced the availability of free COVID-19 rapid antigen testing for all of its international guests who have plans for return travel to the United States. The popular all-suite hotel reopened to guests in December 2020 and has since taken stringent measures to ensure the safety, health and convenience of its guests.
The Bahamian government requires all visitors to take a rapid antigen COVID-19 test on the fifth day of their stay, and guests must produce a valid negative result. This second test follows the initial PCR test that is required no more than five days prior to each guest’s arrival in The Bahamas. Additionally, the United States government requires travelers returning to the U.S. to likewise present a negative result from a rapid antigen COVID-19 test taken within three days of departure and presented at the airport. Visitors returning to the United States are permitted to use their Bahamian government-required, fifth-day rapid antigen test results to reenter the United States, once the traveler departs on his or her sixth, seventh or eighth day of stay.
