WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved an order on Tuesday that expands coronavirus testing requirements for nearly all international air travelers beginning on the 26th. January, sources informed about the matter told Reuters. The new rules will require all U.S.-bound passengers 2 years and older to test negative for COVID-19 within three calendar days of travel.
