Effective immediately, all travelers two years of age or older who are flying into the United States will need to present a negative Covid test (or documentation of recent recovery from Covid) taken no more than 1 day before air travel. This applies to all air travelers, regardless of vaccination or citizenship status. Passengers are now required to present the negative test result to airline personnel before boarding a flight.

Anyone who has recently recovered from Covid may instead travel with documentation that they have recovered from the virus. They may present a positive Covid test taken with 90 days of travel and a letter from a health care provider or public health official authorizing their travel.

The complete, updated CDC guidelines can be found at the following link:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html.
