Due to the coronavirus pandemic, in January 2021, the rule to enter the United States was to present a negative covid-19 test, regardless of which country you were visiting from.
However, CNN recently broke the news that this rule will disappear in the coming days of June.
The US government believes that the test is no longer necessary, based on the science and their data. Although a rise in positive cases has been diagnosed, to access this country, the test it will no longer be a requirement.
Although it is true that the use of face masks will no longer be mandatory, it does not mean that all preventive measures will be modified, since travelers will continue to be required to be properly vaccinated.
According to reporter Kaitlan Collins, the administration of President Joe Biden will work with the airlines to ensure a smooth transition, to adapt to the changes. However, the Center for Disease Control is expected to officially announce the move.
Therefore, the media estimates that this new rule will come into force on June 12 so that they stop asking for the antigen test in airports and migratory areas.
