​Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Tampa Bay Parrot Heads!

Attached is the updated (and hopefully the final) total band listing for he week.

Please review the COVID screening protocol required at MOTM.

This notice has gone out via an email blast and a Facebook Group post. We would appreciate assistance in making sure that your club members who are attending MOTM receive this information. Thanks!

Update to COVID Screening Protocol
1. Timing of PCR Tests Adjusted
2. Certain Antigen Rapid Tests Accepted
3. Rapid Tests Offered at Casa and Pit Stops

This information will also be posted on the PHIP, Inc. Facebook page, where it can be shared. Comments to this post should be limited to questions directly related to the post.

REMINDER: For those who have voluntarily submitted or plan to submit proof of vaccination, the COVID testing requirement is waived.

PCR timing adjustments
Based on concerns raised by some of you regarding the difficulty of timing your tests with your travel and arrival plans, we have made the following adjustments and clarifications to the PCR covid testing protocol:

• For those planning to screen by submitting negative PCR Covid19 test results and arriving in Key West by air or checking into accommodations October 30th or later, the 72 hours may be counted back from your time of flight arrival or hotel check-in so that you do not have to spend your time in Key West arranging for tests

• Anyone facing specific challenges regarding the timing of PCR tests or results due to timing of travel or due to recent COVID infection and recovery may request accommodations by emailing here.

• For local testing in Key West, here is a link to testing sites and facilities listed by the Monroe County Health Department. PHIP has not independently contacted these facilities to determine availability or cost of testing.


Rapid Tests at Casa Marina and Pit Stops Accepted for MOTM21 COVID Screening

Thank you for your patience while we worked out the details of an important partnership to offer convenient antigen testing. We realize this information is coming late but hope that it will provide solutions for those encountering obstacles in COVID testing.

Antigen rapid tests are acceptable for screening as long as they are administered and documented by a CLIA-certified medical professional. While we continue to strongly encourage attendees to voluntarily provide proof of vaccination or to obtain a PCR test, we understand this will not be possible for all attendees.

PHIP has partnered with third party health professionals On Site Testing and My Health US to offer convenient and professional antigen testing at Casa Marina and at the two "Pit Stop" locations in Islamorada. These are Parrot Head friendly organizations who are offering this testing at below market prices for MOTM, and they will communicate the results directly to MOTM registration personnel through a HIPPA-compliant electronic platform which will result in your being pre-screened for MOTM registration.

Pit stop testing will be offered at Islamorada Pit Stops on Tuesday November 2 and Wednesday November 3 between 1pm and 6pm. This is a walk-up service with no appointment necessary. Cost is $59.95

On Site Testing will offer rapid antigen tests at Casa Marina during registration hours on Thursday and Friday November 4and 5 for $59.95. Tests will also be offered at Casa Marina on Wednesday from Noon until 8 pm for pre-screening at the discounted rate of $49.95. Appointments are not required but may be made here:

In addition to providing tests required for screening, our partners will offer over-the-counter self-test kits for sale for anyone experiencing symptoms during the event or wishing to self test privately before leaving Key West or after arriving home to make sure that next hug of the grandchildren is a safe one. These home tests have been hard to find of late and may be limited in quantity depending on supply chain and shipping challenges.

Neither PHIP nor any individual member of the Board or MOTM team has a financial stake in any of the partner companies, and PHIP does not profit from this partnership or the services offered.
