The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday it will require a negative Covid-19 test from all air passengers entering the United States -- a move it says may help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Air passengers will be required to get a viral test within three days before their flight to the United States departs, and to provide written documentation of their lab results, or documentation of having recovered from Covid-19, the agency said in a statement to CNN.
CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield is expected to sign the order on Tuesday and it will go into effect on January 26.
"Variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus continue to emerge in countries around the world, and there is evidence of increased transmissibility of some of these variants," the CDC said in a statement. "With the US already in surge status, the testing requirement for air passengers will help slow the spread of the virus as we work to vaccinate the American public."
CDC testing requirements for UK travelers are like 'a chain link fence to keep out a mosquito,' experts say

f a passenger does not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery, or chooses not to take a test, the airline must not allow the passenger to board, the CDC said.
"Testing does not eliminate all risk, but when combined with a period of staying at home and everyday precautions like wearing masks and social distancing, it can make travel safer, healthier, and more responsible by reducing spread on planes, in airports, and at destinations," Redfield said in the statement.
The new variant of coronavirus, which appears to be more transmissible, has already been found in at least 10 states in samples dating back to mid-December.
An airline industry group has expressed support for the new measure.
"[We are] writing to express our support for a [CDC] proposal to control the spread of COVID-19, including variants of the virus, by implementing a global program to require testing for travelers to the United States," the industry group Airlines for America wrote to Vice President Mike Pence on January 4.
The new rule is similar to one put in place last month for passengers from the UK to the US, which requires that passengers have a negative test within three days of boarding their flight. For the UK requirement that went through last month, airlines can be subject to criminal penalties if they fail to comply, and passengers can be subject to criminal penalties if they willfully give false or misleading information.

The earlier requirement for UK travelers was a response to a new coronavirus variant that was identified in the UK. While the variant appears to spread more easily, there's no evidence that it's any more deadly or causes more severe disease, according to CDC.
At least 72 cases of a variant first identified in the UK have been found in 10 US states, according to data posted Monday by the CDC. That includes at least 32 cases in California, 22 cases in Florida, five cases in Minnesota, four cases in New York, three cases in Colorado, two cases in Connecticut, and one case each in Texas, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Georgia.
The variant has been identified in dozens of countries worldwide.

Can you imagine how busy they will be the Monday after super bowl!  And what happens if it is positive?  Where will they put you?  For 14 days!

Thailand has overpriced quarantine hotels, in the major cities. They may adopt the model in the DR.

Just the potential risk tells much about someone, I’m just being honest.
It’s disheartening... one must really not have shit going on to even contemplate the risk

I can’t imagine being a responsible parent and getting caught up in some bullshit like that, Missing work, spending bread on impromptu hotel, fees etc.

I can’t understand the lone guy w no family no lady no kids , but to the rest, it’s sad AF

Potential risk? The DR is safer than the US. The potential risk is minimal.  I visited the DR 5 times in 2020 and I have yet to see a sick person, personally.  I have yet to have a waitress tell me that somebody at their establishment contracted Covid. Or a gringo that they know got sick when they visited.  Nah bro, the potential risk is extremely low.  No need to predict a gloom and doom future. Unless you don't want people to visit the DR for whatever personal reasons.  No need for the doom and gloom predictions or shaming.
...I'm usually wrong...but that sh!t was great!

The airlines will be very clear with their requirements to board. Only those that don't read their emails will be shocked.

If your coming back from an international flight  you will need a test period.

I’m talking about the potential risk of not making your flight back home, to your kids and your wife your business your real life.

This is how you can tell who has things going on....

Do you think kids won’t mind if their parent isn’t  around for an additional week?

Do you think your small business will fare well if you are not there?

Do you think your employer would be happy with the news that you won’t be in for 5 days, And you have to use up vacation days for a bogus reason

For those that live alone what about your pets For those that live alone what about your pets etc

It’s a huge risk , unless one has nothing going on

If your absence isn’t a problem
Your presence isn’t needed

Let that simmer 🤔
