US CDC confirms it plans to lift COVID-19 testing requirements for travelers from China

(Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed Wednesday it plans to end mandatory COVID-19 tests for travelers from China, joining other countries in eliminating the requirements.

Reuters and other outlets reported Tuesday the CDC plans to drop the testing requirements on Friday that were imposed in early January. The CDC said Wednesday the “public health measure was put in place to protect U.S. citizens and communities as we worked to both identify the size of the surge and gain better insights into the variants that were circulating.”
