Last time I went I tested positive. Took 2 additional tests and they were both negative. Also tested upon arrival in EY and negative.

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.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

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

anyone have any experience/data points if the NY consulate is requiring apostilled docs?
is a notarized doc enough? or are people getting away without that either?

my parents are israeli citizens living in US, and have been vaccinated here in the US few months back.
They are slated to visit israel mid-may for 2 weeks.

Do they need to?
 - take a PCR test before flying to enter the country? or board the plane?
 - do they need to quarantine in Israel? hope not, as that would defeat the purpose and will lead to us canceling the trip.
 - Do they need to test in Israel before flying back to US? (PCR or Rapid)?

YES. But once they get a positive antibody test in Israel they can apply and get quarantine cancelled

YES

they didnít need to forward any results? It was all done automatically without filling anything out?

I now see that Rambam offers home visits for antibody tests (not sure if there are geographic limitations)
