My wife and I are fully vaccinated against COVID. Our two-year-old isn't. There is this obligatory US_Passenger Disclosure and Attestation Form to be filled out by travellers who are not US citizens nor permanent residents.
For our two-year-old we must select
B. NOT FULLY VACCINATED OR UNWILLING TO PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINATION
(X) I attest that I am (or the person I am attesting on behalf of is) excepted from the requirement to present Proof of Being Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19 based on one of the following (make one choice, as applicable):
(X) Child ages 2 through 17 years (complete D only, then sign the form to complete Attestation).
So the interesting part is section D:
I attest that I am (or the person I am attesting on behalf of is) excepted from the requirement to present Proof of Being Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19 and made the following arrangements (must check all boxes in D and then sign Attestation).
[ ] To be tested with a COVID-19 viral test 3-5 days after arriving in the United States, unless I have (or the person has) documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days;
[ ] To self-isolate for a full 5 calendar days and properly wear a well-fitting mask any time I am (or this person is) around others during my (or this person’s) isolation period and for an additional 5 days after ending isolation,
• if the result of the post-arrival viral test is positive, or
• if I develop (or this person develops) COVID-19 symptoms.
Does this mean we must test our-two-year old for COVID on arrival and wait for the results in isolation? This would be horrible.
