The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated travel guidance suggesting that Americans flying domestically should be tested for COVID-19 “as close as possible to departure time.”
On Tuesday, the Biden administration announced on Tuesday that all Americans could take the third free COVID-19 test by email.
Here’s how to order a free COVID-19 test:
Go to COVIDTests.gov Or call 1-800-232-0233.
Each household is eligible for up to eight additional tests.
The CDC guidance also suggests taking a post-travel test if there are situations at high risk of exposure, such as being in a crowded area when not wearing the proper mask or respiratory system while traveling. I am.
Currently, masks are not needed on domestic flights and most public transports, after a federal judge opposes the CDC’s defeating mask obligations on public transport.
Although not required, the CDC continues to recommend the use of masks when using indoor public transport such as planes, buses and trains.
