What to do When You’re Stuck Abroad due to a Positive COVID-19 Test

Due to COVID-19, regulations around getting into and out of countries are changing quickly. During the summer of 2021, when US citizens or residents go abroad, the government is requiring proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure back to the US.

But what happens when you’re abroad and the test comes back positive, even if you’re asymptomatic?

Asymptomatic Positive COVID-19 Test Abroad

When a US citizen or resident has a positive COVID-19 test when abroad, currently, they must quarantine in the country they are in for 14 days, and cannot retake the test for 16 days.

This means you could be stuck for 16 days or more in another country.
