People Entering The US To Be Required To Show A Negative COVID-19 Test From January 26

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.

Ireland, England And Scotland Rules

The news follows news that, from Saturday January 16, all passengers arriving into Ireland must have a negative or not detected COVID-19 PCR test, taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the state, as well as news that people entering England and Scotland will also have to show a negative COVID-19 test result.
