Paradise islands reopen only for tourists who've had Covid-19

Fernando de Noronha island will reopen next week, according to authorities in the northeastern Brazilian state of Pernambuco.

“To land on the archipelago, the tourist will need to present the result of a positive PCR test that is at least 20 days old, or the result of the serological test showing the presence of antibodies against Covid,” its administrator, Guilherme Rocha, told a news conference on Thursday.

Those arriving on the island are now issued an ID bracelet they must wear until officials give them an all-clear.

Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards named Fernando de Noronha the world’s best beach this year.
