What are the hours for the video telehealth / Binax test that Royal allows? Are they 24/7? We have have to test on Christmas night. 

“Supposed” to be 24/7 including holidays…

Last night was  husband's 5th round using Binax. He called at 9:30pm Eastern and there was no wait. The proctor connected immediately. Our longest was around 14 minutes. 

 

 

wow 5 times.  I bet he is an expert by now.

Had our tests this morning with the best possible outcome-NEGATIVE for both of us. I used my Apple 11 leaning against a bowl on my kitchen table. Sailed through it. My husband, on the other hand, used his Apple 12 & had no audio. He canceled that test & used his MacBook Air that we placed on a couple of books for height. Worked perfectly.

I have never been tested - how uncomfortable is it?  How do I know if Im going far enough back?  Can I help my son?  Not sure if he will go far enough back - he is 20 but disabled with Autism and is sensitive- I'm afraid he will stop and not go high enough if uncomfortable.  Will results be inconclusive if he does not go high enough?

I didn’t need to go very deep and think the 5 times swabbing is the most important part. It didn’t actually tickle or hurt but it was a bit odd feeling. The whole process went very fast. I like the fact that we had total control right from our kitchen table. 
 

Proctors were very pleasant & helpful. I would be appalled if they didn’t allow you to assist your son.

It wasn't uncomfortable at all to me.  They say to insert qtip I believe 1/2 to 3/4 inch up each nostril and circle 5 times.   Just search for "I tried the at home Covid-19 test that Royal Caribbean accepts".  Michael Bayley, RCCL President & CEO, shared it on his Facebook.  It gives step by step instructions of someone doing the test.  Maybe you could maybe practice with your son in advance with a qtip.  The anticipation is definitely the worse part.
