U.S. Officials Urge Americans To Skip Travel Overseas After New Testing Requirement Goes Into Effect

The U.S. government is asking Americans not to travel abroad right now because of new testing requirements. The restrictions require passengers flying back into the U.S. to present negative COVID-19 tests taken within 3 days of departure or proof of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days. Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Ian Brownlee said Tuesday, “U.S. citizens who choose to go abroad, whether it’s for a holiday or a genuine emergency, everyone needs to be prepared to be potentially seriously disrupted in their trips.” Brownlee added, “If you cannot easily access a COVID-19 test, or if you test positive, you will end up overseas for much longer than you planned. If that happens, you will be responsible for covering your own lodging and medical costs during that time.”
