CDC Revises Global COVID-19 Testing Order for International Travelers

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced today it is revising the current Global Testing Order to shorten the timeline required for testing for all international air travelers to one day before departure to the United States. The one-day testing policy is anticipated to help protect travelers and the health and safety of American communities from COVID-19.

Beginning December 6, all air travelers, regardless of citizenship or vaccination status, will be required to produce a negative pre-departure COVID-19 viral test taken the day before they board their flight to the U.S. The CDC continues to recommend that all travelers receive a COVID-19 viral test 3-5 days after arrival, and that unvaccinated travelers should quarantine for seven days after travel.
