The United States will require all passengers on flights from the UK to provide a negative coronavirus test before departure, NBC reported.
According to the report, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the news on Thursday evening local time.
In a statement, it said that President Trump would sign the order on the 25th local time and take effect on the 28th local time.
According to the report, according to the requirements of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, passengers from the United Kingdom need to provide a negative coronavirus test within 72 hours, and the airline will verify the results before passengers boarding the plane.
For passengers who refuse to participate in the test, the airline has the right not to allow them to board the plane.
“This additional testing requirement will strengthen our protections for the American public, improve their health and safety, and ensure responsible international travel,” the CDC said.
