Q I know you are in the US, so I thought I should ask for your version of the testing and quarantine rules for families going to America. I’ve read that the pre-flight test must be a PCR taken within 72 hours of arrival; that unvaccinated children must self-isolate for a week; and that we’re all supposed to get tested after we arrive. Do you agree?
