Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

COVID positive today 17/2. Due to travel on 26/2.

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
We are due to depart the Netherlands on the 26/2.

Staying overnight in Germany and then travelling to Austria on the 27/2.

Husband had COVID 4 weeks ago. Son (17) and I have a positive lateral flow today. Son (15) negative.

We are all double vaccinated & boosted.

Is there any hope if my youngest doesn’t get it / already has it (ironically he’s most ill out of all of us).

@LavaLaura, wear PP2 masks to minimise transmission in the household.

What a pain,@LavaLaura. Yes, good idea to wear PP2 masks. But also plan for the worst - when my double vaccinated and boosted son in law had Covid recently - not very badly, and he's super-fit - he tested positive for more than 10 days. In that household, the only escapee was the unvaccinated 9 year old.

are you allowed to travel into Austria within 14 days of an infection? For instance, in UK you wouldn't have your covid vaccination certificate or proof of recovery back by the 26th. I have no idea what the situation is with NL and Austria though.

Get yourself a nasal irrigation treatment - my friend tested negative after 4 days and swore the nasal irrigation treatment was the reason (she too was racing to beat a ski holiday deadline). Worth a shot at least, though perhaps not very pleasant.

Good point. More reading required. We’re driving not flying so slightly easier hopefully!

@LavaLaura, Don't declare the infection, or take a PCR test. Just deal with it yourself. Not worth losing your NHS QR code, especially as testing requirements in the UK will end before you are due to travel.

You might be lucky and all pass a test before you go.

The rules are 10 days quarantine from first symptoms, not test, then you can carry on as normal, even if you are still showing positive, otherwise 5 days + 2 consecutive negative tests.

(If one of you still show slightly positive, the chances are they will not be infectious, then just do a half hearted test to ensure it shows negative).

The lateral flow tests only require nasal swab. Mine was negative, but showed positive when I added throat. ( Not a strict requirement, but I had a cough, and was testing to protect vulnerable family).

Thanks - we’ve already had a PCR.

But we live in the NL so the test here won’t register on our U.K. NHS records until we link them.

We will be leaving and returning to the NL travelling via Germany to Austria.

I can’t find anything on the Austrian websites about a recent COVID infection.

I’ve been using a sea salt nasal spray since yesterday afternoon & have finally tested negative today after 2 wks of positive tests. May be a coincidence but it may have helped me along. Not quite as nasty as doing a nasal rinse.

Are you still testing positive? I’m 5 days in and the two red lines are getting stronger. Hoping to be clear in the next three days so I can travel

https://www.austria.info/en/service-and-facts/coronavirus-information/entry-regulations

And under the section "Entry with positive PCR test after COVID Recovery", the medical certificate form has to be filled and certified by your medical doctor that "at least 14 days have passed since the first detection of SARS-CoV-2..."

https://www.ris.bka.gv.at/Dokumente/Bundesnormen/NOR40236859/II_344_2021_Anlage_I.pdf

Hope the above links help provide some answers to your questions.

Speedy recovery and happy ski-ing soon!

@LavaLaura, no one is going to check any documents between NL and Austria. The entry requirements for Austria change on 22nd so you only need a test to enter anyway. I am assuming you wouldn't travel unless testing negative.
