Tested Positive

I had tested positive for COVID last week; I'm traveling in October and have now tested negative. Does my RS tour require a rapid antigen test 24 hours or 72 hours prior to my trip and proof of a positive result? (I am double vaccinated and double boosted.)

From the link on this site:
Will I need a negative COVID-19 test prior to joining a tour?
Yes, for our tours starting May 20, 2022, and later, we're requiring pre-tour testing with a rapid self-test. Each tour member will need to show proof of a negative self-test taken within 24 hours of the first day of the tour, whether or not a test is required for entry into your arrival country.

Did you get a PCR as proof of your positive state?
You only need the proof of a previous positive in case you still test positive the day the tour starts. Some people can test positive for months.

What if I've recently had COVID and test positive with my pre-tour test?
If you've had COVID between 14 - 90 days prior to the start of your tour, you may obtain a letter of recovery signed by your doctor that documents your illness and recovery. Bring this letter with you on tour and if your pre-tour test is positive show it to your guide.

Glad you’re feeling better and testing negative. You’ll need to do a self-test before starting your tour as described by the previous posters. Besides that, you’re good to go! Enjoy your trip!
