The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has approved an order for coronavirus testing to be required for all international air travellers arriving to the US starting January 26.
The new rules will require all US-bound passengers aged two and over to get negative COVID-19 test results within three calendar days of travel.
The CDC said that airlines must confirm negative test results for all passengers or documentation of recovery before they board aircraft.
