  How Airports Will Change After Coronavirus, According to Experts (Video) Brace yourself for major airport changes in a post-coronavirus world. Even before COVID-19 cratered air travel, the airport experience usually left something to be desired. Travelers had to contend with smudge-screened check-in kiosks, snaking security lines, crowded terminals, overpriced retail and dining outlets, and a frenzied boarding procedure — all before they even set foot on an airplane.

It's been more than one month since Jamaica reopened to international tourism with heightened health and safety protocols in place across the island and as the country's recovery moves along, more airlines and accommodations are resuming operations and welcoming guests back safely.

  Jamaica Travel Restrictions: What Potential Visitors Need to Know Are there still travel restrictions to Jamaica amid ongoing COVID-19 concerns? What are they, do they apply to you and where would you be allowed to go once you get there?In a recent bulletin, Jamaica’s Prime Minister announced revised rules for entry into the island—namely, that all non-business travelers, ages 12 and up, coming from the states of Arizona, New York, Florida and Texas will be required to upload proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from a laboratory that’s been accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) within ten days of their intended arrival in Jamaica.

Currently, all visitors to Jamaica are required to register for a Travel Authorization no more than five days prior to arrival. Additionally, as of July 15, leisure travelers coming from high-risk states including Florida, New York, Arizona and Texas are required to complete their Travel Authorization questionnaire no less than two days and no more than five days prior to arrival. Travelers from these states will also be required to include proof of a negative PCR (nasal swab) COVID-19 test result taken within 10 days of arrival.

Hotel guests can anticipate contactless digital check-in, hand sanitizer stations, digital or single-use menus and social distancing markers throughout the properties. What's more, hotels and resorts have done away with self-service buffets.
