Travellers will need to take COVID-19 test a day before flying to the US, Biden says | FULL

Canadians and all other foreign visitors who travel to the United States by air will need to get a COVID-19 test no later than the day before their departure.

U.S. President Joe Biden announced Thursday that he is slashing the current 72-hour testing window for fully vaccinated travelers as part of a suite of public health measures aimed at slowing the spread of the highly mutated Omicron COVID-19 variant.

The rise of Omicron marks only the latest twist in the long road back to some semblance of normality for people who routinely travel back and forth between the two countries.

It has been less than a month since the U.S. lifted its restrictions on fully vaccinated, non-essential travelers seeking to enter the country by land from Canada and Mexico.

Other components of the Biden administration’s strategy include a plan to expand booster shots, new family vaccination clinics, accelerating the vaccination campaign for children under the age of five and deploying “surge teams” to help with widespread Omicron outbreaks.
