International travelers flying to the United States will no longer need to show proof of a negative coronavirus test before boarding their flights to the U.S., a senior Biden administration official said Friday, ending one of the nation’s last pandemic-related travel requirements.

The requirement will end at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.

The administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity ahead of the announcement, said science and data show the requirement is no longer necessary. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will reassess the decision in 90 days and would reinstate the requirement if necessary, officials said.
This will be very welcomed! The US Government has already canceled the requirement for travelers coming back in from Canada. That's the only foreign country I'm going to this year, Victoria in July, Montreal in September. I'm flying to Montreal, so I'll have to figure out if I need tested to fly, but I am hopeful that with this, that might not be necessary. I am entering and leaving Canada in July by ferry, and they have already eased that testing for that.

Why not just organise to have the test done and stop worrying about it?

Oh, I'm sorry. I guess the tests aren't free like in Ozzyland.

It's mostly just the timing and the hassle of it just before you are getting ready to travel.

Friend of mine just got back from 3 months in Europe (Austria, Italy, Israel). (He's Ukrainian, but he promised he would stay away - his daughter is working refugee services in Austria and he did help translate). Zero problem with Covid. Until he stepped off the plane in OZ. Nobody was wearing masks on the plane and he tested positive.

I went to work last Friday and forgot to put my mask on. I tested positive on Saturday.
