CDC Requires Negative COVID-19 Test for Air Travelers from U.K. to U.S.

Atlanta, GA... President Trump is taking another step to protect the health of the American people by requiring air passengers arriving from the United Kingdom (U.K.) to test negative, via PCR or Antigen test, no more than 72 hours before departure from the U.K. to the United States.



The public health authorities in the United Kingdom recently announced the discovery of a new variant of SARS-CoV-2.  Viruses constantly change through mutation, and preliminary analysis in the U.K. suggests that this new variant may be up to 70% more transmissible than previously circulating variants.

On March 14, President Trump issued a Presidential Proclamationexternal icon to suspend the entry of foreign nationals who visited the United Kingdom in the past 14 days. This has reduced air travel to the U.S. from the U.K. by about 90%. This additional testing requirement will fortify our protection of the American public to improve their health and safety and ensure responsible international travel. The order is consistent with existing CDC testing guidance plus the HHS, U.S. Department of Transportation, and Department of Homeland Security joint guidance in the “Runway to Recoverypdf iconexternal icon” document.

This new order is consistent with the measures that have been taken so far to increase our ability to detect and contain COVID-19 proactively and aggressively.

Passengers are required to get a viral test (i.e., a test for current infection) within the 3 days before their flight from the U.K. to the U.S. departs, and provide written documentation of their laboratory test result (in hard copy or electronic) to the airline. Airlines must confirm the negative test result for all passengers before they board. If a passenger chooses not to take a test, the airline must deny boarding to the passenger.

This order will be signed by CDC Director Robert Redfield, M.D., tomorrow, December 25, and become effective on December 28, 2020.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICESexternal icon

CDC works 24/7 protecting America’s health, safety and security. Whether disease start at home or abroad, are curable or preventable, chronic or acute, or from human activity or deliberate attack, CDC responds to America’s most pressing health threats. CDC is headquartered in Atlanta and has experts located throughout the United States and the world.

Good of him. Too bad he set the bad example internally and so many Americans decided they were safe to travel this Christmas. January ought to be a nightmare.

His father hated losers, and that what Donnie boy is. A stone cold loser. He will die by himself, wondering where it all went wrong. Bye loser.

      No MAGA won't happen ( and trump won't run in 2024) under the next administration, sadly after about one year the 💩 will hit the fan. I'm hoping Biden walking back on illegal immigration means he won't have open borders. If they open our borders we will have tens of millions of immigrants who will bring in their sick and their filth, crime and gangs, and terrorist who will be paying America back with a vengeance. Our economy will plummet, our crime will soar like it has been in all the large democrat run cities except this time it will be nation wide, it won't be just blue cities and states. Once the door opens it's about impossible to close.
      Under Biden, China will own us because the Dems will let them. I feel sorry for the younger generation, I think they might not know that this country is one of a kind, a free country that they've taken for granted.

        You sure have this negative attitude about our POTUS. What makes you think he won't run again in 2024 (in case the unfortunate "thing" happens)?

          Trump has some serious legal trouble to face once he stops being protected by the office.

    That's why we're recalling Newsom, bad example, leadership skills putting down his own citizens, letting illegals take our tax dollars while ignoring our own citizens and so much more.
    Time to get rid of Gavin and get someone honest where his rules and laws he will obey just like we do.....besides that large of democrats in prison, jails and gangs all across our state, oh and the tens of thousands on probation and our dear governor let out of lock up

      Even if you get 1.5million signatures, that just places a recall ballot in the next election. The voters will then decide.
      All of them.
      Not just 1.5million of them.
      By the way, what GOP leader is going to step up to face Newsom?
      Tom McClintock?
      Hahahaha. McClintock, as in lock him up

            Gone, the Republicans destroyed the nation's defense against epidemics.
            They always want to privatize everything to make $, F the general welfare, as the Constitution puts it.

            This is what socialism does- protect the general welfare- the health of the people of the nation.

            The hatred of socialism by the Republicans gave us the death and debilitation of the Covid epidemic.

            F the citizens- make $ it's called disaster capitalism.
            dump and jered early on schemed on making $ from the death and suffering of so many, this is the sociopathy of negligent homicide.
            They and many others should be taken to trial for their crimes.

      Yeah, Trump has golfed way more than Obama. In 4 years vs 8 years.
      On the taxpayer's dime. And his clubs charge the Secret Service for rentals on the carts they use.

      It's a waste of time to show documentation, the numbers are easily seen.
      You will say fake news.
      This is the sad situation America is in now, the ill president, using Hitlers propaganda tools, and Republicans silence or agreeing with him is sedition.
      You are a traitor, the enemy of truth, documented facts, Putins troll.
      A proud traitor how sad.

        Are these some of the facts introduced by CNN, NBC, CBS and the other fake news outlets? Seem to me the left spent the last 4 years trying to find dirt on President Trump but it was a waste of time. All of a sudden he is going to be behind bars? In your dreams you leftest commies!

          Yes, *all* of the news, around the world, that has anything negative to say about trump is fake.


          But your tiny news bubble, that’s the one place telling the truth.

            Well, your idiot in chief just signed the stimulus bill.
            The fake news that is negative towards Trump doesn't compare with the negative news that is real.
            SRStupid, how long you going to hang your red MAGA hat on this lame duck loser.
            Americans are hurting because of Trump's stupidity.
