Following this test, individuals will be relocated to an approved hotel for a three-day period to await their test results. The cost of this stay, anticipated to be approximately $2,000, will be assumed by the individual.

Individuals who then receive a negative COVID-19 test result will be able to return home to complete their quarantine period. Individuals who receive a positive COVID-19 test result will be relocated to a designated government facility to undergo their isolation period.
