CDC rescinds order for negative Covid-19 test

Air passengers required a negative pre-departure Covid-19 test. Air passengers will no longer need to get tested.

Where: United States

The Facts

The US no longer requires air travelers to carry proof of a negative Covid-19 test before entering the country.
The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) has rescinded the previous order from June 12th, 2022 at 12.01AM ET.
The CDC stated, “The COVID-19 pandemic has now shifted to a new phase, due to the widespread uptake of highly effective COVID-19 vaccines, the availability of effective therapeutics, and the accrual of high rates of vaccine- and infection-induced immunity at the population level in the United States.”
The travel sector has been pushing for this change.
Roger Dow, President of the US Travel Association stated, “The Biden administration is to be commended for this action, which will welcome back visitors from around the world and accelerate the recovery of the U.S. travel industry.”
