Covid 19 rule relaxed in USA

Foreign air travellers visiting the USA from Sunday no longer require proof of a negative Covid-19 test before entering the country.

According to the BBC, officials said they were dropping the requirement due to the "tremendous progress" the country had made in the fight against the virus.

The travel industry has been pushing for an end to the policy, which they say has deterred bookings, as families fear getting stranded abroad.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will re-evaluate the policy in 90 days. The administration said it would "not hesitate to act" to reinstate the rule should new variants make officials believe it is necessary.

Most non-US citizens must still be vaccinated to travel to the country.
