The next mornings flight was delayed a short while due to some small issue with the intercom that was sorted out in less than an hour. We were on an aircraft that must have held 300 passengers and there was only 12 in the main cabin. Wow, that was weird. American said that starting in April they were cutting down flights to twice a week rather than their daily flights. Can’t blame them for that.
At the time of our arrival, Grenada has no active COVID cases and has only recorded 148 total with 1 death. They take the pandemic very seriously and most likely limited their exposure by shutting down its boarders when they have. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the Health Ministry, had the required temperature check and filled out paperwork as to why we were coming and where we will be staying. We also had to provide them with our RT-PCR test results taken in the USA within 72 hours of flight, Approval for Entry from from the Grenada Ministry, proof that we pre-paid to have another COVID test on day 5 of quarantine and proof as to where we would be staying for quarantine.
As we exited the airport we had to go directly to the airport shuttle area where we had to show the agent our reservations for quarantine. We chose the Bay Leaf Apartments which looked brand new and there may have been one other apartment occupied. These were built to house the college students but due to COVID the campus and surrounding apartments are virtually empty. The IGA (grocery store) has a website where you can select the groceries you want and they deliver them right to the apartment. Also, we had a variety of restaurants that were also set up for delivery. All-in-all, very convenient and our time there went by quickly. On the second day I was having some sensitivity with my teeth. Not knowing if it was the upper or lower teeth, I decided to find out by eating granola for breakfast. Well that did the trick when 1/3rd of my tooth broke off. Since we were not cleared from quarantine I was not able to get it fixed just yet. On day 5, two ladies from the Health Department came to test us both with the results coming in two more days. On the 7th day, we received eMails stating the test results were Negative and we were now able to move to our next location. I called the dentist around 10:15 and was able to get into the office around 11:15. The dentist was very good and took care of it without any issues.
