The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) has ended the requirement that all air passengers, 2 years or older, traveling to the United States from a foreign country must present a negative COVID-19 test result from a sample taken no more than one day before departure, or provide documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past 90 days, before boarding a flight.

The CDC continues to recommend that all travelers remain up to date with vaccination against COVID-19 and be tested for current infection with a viral test before and after they travel, and after any known exposure to a person with COVID-19, so they can take appropriate precautions to reduce the risk of transmission while infectious.  Furthermore, CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.

The rescission of the previous order became effective for all aircraft departing their point of origin on or after June 12, 2022, at 12:01 a.m. EDT.
