Starting in early November, foreign nationals will be allowed to fly into the U.S. if they are fully vaccinated and able to show proof of vaccination prior to boarding a U.S.-bound flight, White House Covid coordinator Jeffrey Zients said.Sept. 20, 2021

02:09The requirement will ease travel restrictions that limited entry into the U.S. in many cases for noncitizens who had recently been in33 countries, including many European nations and the United Kingdom, regardless of vaccination status. But for travelers outside of those countries, the new system will put stricter requirements in place that could be a barrier to those living in countries where vaccines are in short supply. headtopics.com

"We will move to this much stricter global system, so we will have a consistent approach across all countries, it will require foreign nationals to be vaccinated, to prove they're vaccinated, and then to go through the testing and contact tracing regiments," Zients said.

The U.S. will also start putting into place additional testing requirements, he said. Foreign nationals will have to be tested three days prior to departure to the U.S. and show proof of a negative test, and unvaccinated Americans will have to test within one day of departure and be required to test again after their arrival.

The CDC will also require airlines to collect information for each U.S.-bound traveler, including their phone number and email address, to aid public health officials in contact tracing.While there is still no vaccination requirement for domestic air travel, Zients said nothing is off the table.

"We clearly have a track record that shows we're pulling available levers to acquire vaccinations and we're not taking any measures off the table on specific authorities used for implementation," he said.Zients didn't detail what vaccines will qualify and what would constitute as fully vaccinated and said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would provide further details. The new policy applies only to air travel and not land border crossings, which have been closed to nonessential travel between Canada and Mexico. headtopics.com

Well that is going to make the crowds at the southern border far larger when you add the Vax card check to the process….. What about the illegal immigrants crossing the border Does that include our Haitian friends? Took long enough But not for domestic flight? Really disappointed in the Biden administration

How about those who have taken the SinoVav? 👍 I APPROVE Todo el mundo a vacunarse, hay que dejar de lavarle el cerebro a la gente, de parte de los anti-vacunas y negacionistas, obviamente que la mayoría de ellos no superaron al virus, eso es indiscutible. Or you can just walk across with the other illegal aliens without it.

U.S. and EU struggle with the same question: How to maximize COVID-19 vaccinationsDespite apparently divergent strategies, officials in both the U.S. and the EU are struggling with the same question: how to boost vaccination rates to the max and end a pandemic that has repeatedly thwarted efforts to control it. If you subscribe to LAT and are not from Northern California or Bakersfield, then LAT thinks you’re not a real American So why pay money to a newspaper who thinks you’re garbage? It’s time to return to regular life. You can’t help those that won’t help themselves. Never happen !! Even if you vaccinated you can get it! So you need to put back masks mandate everywhere to lower the risk of infection and have everyone vaccinated at the same time to lower mortality That’s how u do it ! Mistake was thinking that once vaccinated , you immune !
