Air passengers arriving from the United Kingdom (U.K.) are required to test negative, via PCR or Antigen test, no more than 72 hours before departure from the U.K. to the United States, effective December 28, 2020.

The U.S. CDC issued this press statement on December 24th, in response to public health authorities in the UK's recent discovery of a new variant of SARS-CoV-2. The UK's preliminary analysis suggests this new variant may be up to 70% more transmissible than previously circulating coronavirus variants.
