CDC TO REQUIRE NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST FOR INTERNATIONAL PASSENGERS FLYING TO US

(CNN) – All international air travelers will soon be required to have a negative COVID-19 test to enter the U.S.

The director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention signed an order this week for passengers show proof of a negative test.

The order takes effect January 26th.

The rule states all passengers have a negative test within three days of boarding their flight.

The CDC says its concerned about new variants of the virus that appear to be more transmissible.

The CDC wants airlines to confirm the negative test of each person.

If a passenger doesn’t take one, the airline is advised to not let them board.
