International Travel Restrictions (Including Into The U.S.) Intensify On January 26, Biden Administration To “Strengthen” Measures

And if you’re thinking you’re all good with that other thing? Think again

(by Half Dollar) Planning some international travel?

It’s not getting any easier, and in fact, it’s getting worse.

Much worse.

Here are just a few increased restrictions, beginning on January 26, from the CDC (bold added for emphasis):

On January 12, 2021, CDC issued an Order requiring all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to present the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight. This Order will go into effect at 12:01am EST (5:01am GMT) on January 26, 2021.

Planning to travel into the US?

Well then, don’t test positive three days prior to flying:

Airlines must refuse to board anyone who does not present a negative test result for COVID-19 or documentation of recovery.

But wait, there’s more!

That’s right folks, and here’s just how lovely international travel is going to be going forward, in this instance, specifically coming into the United States, but most likely travel will be more or less restricted in a similar manner in many nations (bold added for emphasis and commentary):

Any flight entering the US, even for a connectionwill require testing before departure.
