U.S. to require negative Covid-19 test for air travelers from the United Kingdom

ATLANTA (AP) — The United States is going to require airline travelers from Britain to get a negative COVID-19 test first. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the new policy late Thursday. The U.S. is the latest country to announce travel restrictions because of a new variant of the coronavirus that is spreading in Britain and elsewhere. Airline passengers from the United Kingdom will have to get a negative COVID-19 tests within three days of their flight. The requirement goes into effect Monday. The CDC said because of restrictions in place since March, air travel to the U.S. from the U.K. is down by 90%.
