All travellers to US now require COVID-19 test one day before departure

 

As of today, Monday December 6, all individuals traveling to the United States, regardless of vaccination status or nationality, must show a negative pre-departure COVID-19 viral test taken no more than one day before boarding their flight to the United States.

A release from the US Embassy in Bridgetown states that this new regulation, announced by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), applies to all travelers age two and older.

It goes on to state that persons who have recently recovered from COVID-19 “may instead, travel with documentation of recovery from COVID-19, such as a positive COVID-19 viral test result on a sample taken no more than 90 days before the flight’s departure, and a letter from a licensed healthcare provider or a public health official stating that you were cleared to travel.”

According to the US Embassy release, this new measure is in addition to the requirement that foreign national air travelers be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to fly to the United States, with only limited exceptions.

For more information on these updated travel requirements, the public is asked to visit the CDC’s website at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html

    @J.John-Charles, wrong news organization (DNO) here. Send this garbage to “Fox Fake News’ to further polarize their gullible viewers, you included who are being fed a bunch of lies daily and you guys are simply just eating up all this crap.
    Enjoy the “bleach” your boy Trump offered as a remedy for the corona virus.

      He should have also followed his Messiah’s (Trump) advice and injected himself with bleach and UV-Ray light. Maybe he wouldn’t have been alive to spew his Trumpian tripe on DNO.
      I wonder where he was during the January 6th insurrection? Was he involved in the occupation of the Capitol building along with the PROUD BOYS, Q-ANNON, OATH KEEPERS and other KKK affiliated Clans? These BLACKS FOR TRUMP idiots make me sick.

    During the 2020 campaign, Biden was asked.
    “Do you trust the vaccines?
    His answer was
    “If Trump asked me to take the vaccine,I will not take it” Kamala Harris also said.
    “I don’t trust these vaccines under Trump”
    The these people on CNN,ABC,NBC, TV made fun of Trump about these vaccines. They said it is impossible to get a vaccine under 5yrs. Trump and his vaccine is “Alice In Wonderland”
    Biden came in office and met 3 of these vaccines already in use.
    Now instead he apologized, for telling Americans (don’t trust these vaccines under Trump, for that is what he was doing, and he was afraid they came out before election day.
    Biden is now telling us.
    “My patience is running out with those who are not taking the vaccines”
    The same vaccines they made fun of.
    He also said
    “I will not mandate that people take the vaccines,plus I don’t have the authority to do so.”
    Nancy Polosi, V.P..Harris said the same thing.
    Biden is doing exactly that. the courts that…

      Hey Channel 1, aka JJ,
      Trump is still a proud racist, the Pharoah of Qanon and evangelist white supremacists whom you all gave bad advice and squandered his 1-term presidency, translation – he ain’t coming back. But whether you are a white guy or a black white-supremacist(aka. ..) and there are many for pennies on the dollar, Jim-Crow Joe is still the lesser of the two evils.

    You remember this saying?
    Something like this
    “What comes around goes around”
    In preventing the spread of the virus in the U.S Trump imposed a no entry on Some European countries,on Jan. 31.20. Immediately Biden called him racist, said it was xenophobic and creating hysteria.
    Now let us compare.
    A Dr. in South Africa discovered this new virus, Omicron. She said it is mild and no need to take any drastic action. And immediately Biden put a travel ban on 8 African countries. Out of the 8,only two of them had this new virus.
    Just remember Biden told us (blacks) he loves us . But that good for nothing Trump, Oh he hate all blacks

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 7 Thumb down 8
