CDC to Require Negative Covid Test From Air Travelers From U.K.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now requires air passengers arriving from the U.K. to get a negative polymerase chain reaction or antigen test no more than 72 hours before leaving, according to a statement.

  • The order will be signed by President Donald Trump on Christmas day and becomes effective on Dec. 28.
  • Passengers from the U.K. will have to provide written documentation of their laboratory test result to the airline.
  • Airlines must confirm the negative test result for all passengers boarding and must deny entry to those who don’t take a test.
