COVID-19 Testing Requirement for Air Travelers Entering US to End

Must Read

For the most up-to-date news and information about the coronavirus pandemic, visit the WHO and CDC websites.

The requirement for air travelers entering the US to get a negative COVID-19 test before departure will end at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, June 12, CNN and The Wall Street Journal reported Friday, citing an anonymous senior Biden administration official. US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief Rochelle Walensky apparently signed the order on Friday.

Travelers entering the US have had to present negative results since the beginning of 2021, but the CDC has seemingly determined it’s no longer necessary based on available science and data. The requirement could be reinstated if a more transmissible COVID-19 strain surfaces.

The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment.
