President Joe Biden said Thursday that the U.S. would toughen pre-departure COVID-19 testing protocols for inbound international travelers.
Additional Information: Biden announced the new testing requirement as part of a broader strategy to fight COVID-19 this winter and mitigate the spread of the Omicron variant. Earlier this week, the U.S. implemented new entry restrictions on travel from South Africa and seven other countries following the emergence of the new variant. The White House also said that it would extend a requirement that individuals wear a mask on airplanes, trains and public transportation and at indoor transportation hubs, including airports. The White House fact sheet indicates the stricter testing requirement will take effect “early next week,” but as of 5 p.m. EST, the White House had yet to announce an implementation date.
