What's Going On With COVID in Punta Cana?

I've read about the very high level of COVID in DR = source (CDC), as a whole, however what's it actually like in PC?

I even saw a shot of resort workers getting vaccinated = source (ministry)

Hey SarahSmiles, I have been researching for the same as we had to postpone our Punta Cana trip already twice and are we planning on visiting very soon. Some friends have traveled to PC about a month ago. They had a great time and are safe (they were vaccinated) but they told me that with all the extra precautions and worries, they could not enjoy their visit to the fullest. We might be going in mid-2021, if we do I'll let you know more. We'll appreciate as well the review of anyone who visited recently.

The staff are being vaccinated due to the nature of their work. They are in constant public contact. Not sure why that would set off alarm bells. I sent you a link to Covid cases. Do some reading and figure out what country "really" has the bigger issue with Covid. I'll bet you $100 smackers that it is not the Dominican Republic....LOL

No alarm bells here, I'm actually encouraged by the staff being vaccinated.

Yes Mike, we know the US had a high rate of Covid! We are also doing quite well with vaccination! 😉

I visited PC in 2020 and am returning in October 2021. I found it to be very safe, as long as you are courteous traveler.

We are doing a girls trip and leave in a few days. We are all vaccinated, and have been for months. I think the most annoying thing is our hotel is charging $140USD for a COVID test we need to take because the US requires it for re-entry. I'm going to see how much PUJ charges and will probably take it there. Results take up to 3 hours, and it'll take 8 hours to get home. I will have the results before I land, so we should be ok. I think a COVID test should be waived if we are fully vaccinated, but whatever.

Write to your US Senators and the white house to tell them to waive the Covid testing.
