From seeing what my extended family went through recently dot all your I and T's before flying internationally. 

They came fully vaccinated from Israel to visit the US and thought returning to Israel would be relatively straightforward.  Well first of all for one of the flights on Lufthansa through Germany my family member was first told no covid test would be necessary to enter Germany.  Then she was told at the airport she needed one.  She took one but when she went back a second time to the airport she was told no good because it needed to be 48 hours prior to flight and hers was within 72 hours so she had to shell out $ at the airport(ewr) and take another covid test and this time it was positive!  so she is still in the US while most of her immediate family is in Israel yikes!!

also one of her daughter unexpectedly tested positive and is still in the US a week after she was suppose to return to Israel for school etc.....

I am not sure if people realize how much can go wrong

False positives or reinfections? I take it they tested positive on a rapid, did they follow up with PCR?

Last time I went I tested positive. Took 2 additional tests and they were both negative. Also tested upon arrival in EY and negative.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not sure
The daughter had a rapid negative but 2 PCR positives
Her mother had 1 PCR negative and followed up by a PCR positive within a span of like 3 days!

Unless someone is super flexible with being out of the country for longer than anticipated I am just not sure if worth travelling internationally yet

How long did you wait to re-test?

Got a vaccine dose on a Wednesday. Took PCR test on Thursday. Was notified of positive result on Friday. Took PCR test on Motzoei Shabbos and another one on Sunday around noon, both of those came back negative (though I got the results for the one taken on Sunday before getting the results for the one taken on Motzoei Shabbos).

Oh, and on day 8 or 9 after the positive test someone came to my home to say I need to quarantine. Obviously I was out of the country by then, but I did take the time to call him back and had a conversation with him, pointing out how ridiculous it is.

That's embarrassing

so you think it was a false positive? or you had it and ran its time period?
