What Happens If I Test Positive For Covid Whilst There?

REAL TALK: If you test positive for Covid, you’re going to get stuck in Mexico for a bit longer than expected. But hey, don’t worry, you’ll be home again before you know it.

Many resorts have set up Covid blocks of rooms where travellers who test positive are quarantined for two weeks. You’ll have to stay in your room for the duration of the quarantine. Assuming you test negative after two weeks, you’ll be able to go home.
