U.S. Set To Relax COVID-19 Test Requirement For Air Passengers

The Biden administration is set to lift its requirement for international air travelers to take a COVID-19 test before entering the U.S.

The move will go into effect at midnight on Sunday, a senior administration official reportedly said.

The CDC will reassess its decision in 90 days and if officials decide they need to reinstate it, because of a concerning new variant, for example, will do so.

The measure has been in place since January 2021.

That official said the Biden administration plans to work with airlines to ensure a smooth transition with the change, but it will likely be a welcome move for most in the industry.
