Has quarantine got you down? Well, welcome to the club!
But that’s exactly what the money-hungry mongrels who are feasting off the fears of indoctrinated citizens want!
You have to jump through their hoops to get a flight this side of the pandemic – at a price steeper than your wallet is wide.
The extensive forced isolation, travel restrictions, and banishment of family gatherings has us all thirsty for adventure.
Which makes it the perfect time for Delta Airlines to develop the “COVID-19 Free” flight.
We’ve previously reported on New York’s very own governor Andrew Cuomo and his overbearing mandates that require not one, but two, negative coronavirus tests before you can walk the iconic streets of his Big Apple.
Well, you’d be wrong because Delta has managed to take it to the next level.
Delta Airlines has joined up with Italy’s Auroporti di Roma and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to offer a trip to Italy without having to go through its relentless quarantine period.
But in order to sip on espresso at the hip café Faro in Rome or shop along the Via Montenapoleone in Milan, you’ll have to snag one of the coveted seats on the “COVID-19 Free” flight looking to launch soon.
Steve Sear, Delta’s president, has been working with industry and medical professionals to develop a safety protocol that will limit your risk of contracting COVID-19 when flying.
Henry Ting, M.D., M.B.A., Chief Value Officer of Mayo Clinic, is one of the medical professionals Sear has been consulting with and says:
“Based on the modeling we have conducted, when testing protocols are combined with multiple layers of protection, including mask requirements, proper social distancing and environmental cleaning, we can predict that the risk of COVID-19 infection – on a flight that is 60 percent full – should be nearly one in a million.”
But isn’t that what everyone’s been doing?
Oh, and what wasn’t mentioned is the FOUR coronavirus tests you’ll have to endure.
According to Delta’s website, you will need to have a negative PCR COVID test 72 hours before departure, a negative rapid test at the airport before boarding, another negative rapid test upon arrival to Italy, and a negative rapid test before returning to the United States.
And you better also be willing to shell out some extra cash, because these tests are all out-of-pocket expenses.
Some flights will have the tests available for purchase at the airport, but you’ll have to check ahead.
What’s worse is that upon returning to the United States, the CDC will urge you to provide personal information so you can be monitored for contact tracing.
Stepping into the historic Colosseum and rowing along the canals of Venice comes at a steep price these days.
We are hopeful that one day the COVID tyrants will loosen their iron grip and let us explore to our heart’s desire.
Until then, happy quarantine-free travels!
