Default Possibility of Quarantine in DR?

So I heard that upon entering the DR, there are guys in hazmat suits taking temperatures. What if one of us had a regular fever and was wrongly quarantined? What if we actually had the corona and were quarantined there for weeks at the mercy of the authorities? Is there health system adequate for severe inflammatory pneumonia?

These questions are valid for other destinations as well. It would be great to have some official information as to what would happen in this scenario.

I was actually in an emergency room in Santiago a few years back and I was very impressed to the level of care I received.

Yeah, would have been close to $1000 in the states, $19.

Probably a good question for the union we are paying to protect us...

What about the nurses??

BTW I’d figure the local authorities would be more than happy to send you back to the US of A.

Are nurses part of ALPA? Did I miss that?

Well you don't have to worry about that now because DR has closed its boarders. There goes half our flights.
