New U.S. COVID-19 Air Travel Rules- Effective January 26

 

 

Tripadvisor

Are you considering an international trip? If so, read on. The CDC has issued a COVID-19 order that may impact your plans for re-entering the United States.

Effective January 26, 2021 travelers arriving in the U.S. must:


1) Get tested for COVID-19 no more than 3 days before departing to the United States and show a negative test result to the airline before boarding OR 2) show documentation of recent recovery from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding.

This new order applies to all air passengers — including U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents — aged 2 years and older. It also applies regardless of the length of time spent outside of the United States.

Acceptable documentation of recovery from COVID-19 includes both a positive viral test result within 3 months of travel (or the time period specified in current CDC guidance) AND a letter from a healthcare provider or public health official stating that the passenger is cleared to end isolation.

Passengers who have tested positive for COVID-19 will need to delay their travel until they meet the criteria to end isolation; learn more here.

Excellent. All are infected-guilty. And meanwhile the airline industry gets Fed subsidy. What could possibly go wrong here?

Let’s see.

  1. PCR test is non determinative
  2. SARS2-CV19 is generally a non fatal easily treatable illness with a 99.67% recovery rate, while other common communicable diseases have much lower recovery rates. Airlines going to test for all those?
  3. Restrictions have the appearance of ensuring application of health protocols but are really mere capstones for the burying of both the concept of public health and personal freedom.
  4. Next up, application of a vaccination passport where the vaccine being used as an mRNA process has zero long term study and is known to create serious and fatal consequences in a significant portion of the vaccinated.
