CDC Ends Testing Requirement for Travelers Entering U.S.

The CDC says it will reassess its decision in 90 days.

The CDC has officially lifted the requirement of a negative covid test for travelers entering the U.S.
The change went into effect for U.S.-bound air travelers at midnight last night. The measure has been in place since January of last year but, the travel industry, along with some scientific experts, say the policy has been out of date for months. A Biden Administration official said the CDC made the decision after determining it was no longer necessary based on current science and data. The CDC says it will reassess its decision in 90 days. Officials can reinstate it, if need be, if there’s a concerning new variant.
