Travelers flying from the United Kingdom to the United States will now be required to arrive with a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of their flight, according to a new rule from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The new requirement, which went into effect on Sunday, applies to all passengers who are currently eligible to fly from the UK to the U.S., including U.S. citizens. Airlines will be responsible for confirming negative test results before boarding, the CDC said. They'll need to confirm the date the test was collected, the type of test taken, and that the test was in fact negative.
Passengers can choose to get either a nucleic acid amplification test or an antigen test.
