Starting later this month, people flying into the United States will have to provide proof of a negative COVID test.
The CDC made this decision on Tuesday.
The order applies to all international air passengers, including U.S. citizens.
Passengers who do not provide documentation of a negative test will not be allowed to board a plane.
Here’s what you need to know before you fly:
- You should get tested no more than three days before your flight.
- Make sure to be tested with a viral test, to determine if you are currently infected with COVID-19.
- Make sure you receive your results before your flight departs, and have documentation to show this to the airline.
This order goes into effect Jan. 26.
