COVID-19 testing Genova??


Recommended Posts

MSC will do the test (for everyone) upon boarding (even if you have an existing test certificate you will be tested again).  

 

In case you need a test to return to Denmark after the cruise, MSC were also offering this to German customers (that you get tested again as you disembark) so maybe is offered for everyone.

 

Be aware that if you test positive in Italy you will be required to quarantine (in a government location if you don't live there) until you can return 2 negative tests.

MSC requires non-Italian residents to have a test within 72 hours of embarkation, then MSC will test you again at embarkation.  To avoid a quarantine you will need the negative test results before entering Italy.  But because you arrived four days before embarkation to meet the MSC requirement you will need to get another test once in Milan or Genoa.

oops - sorry.  I thought the procedures would be the same as for Germany, but didn't realize Denmark was a risk area.

 

If I was in your position I would wait and see what happens to the infection rate in Demark in April.

 

From MSC Germany:
