Quarantine After International Travel Now Required for Those Arriving in the U.S.

On his first full day in office, President Joe Biden has announced more requirements for travelers to the U.S. Aside from providing negative COVID-19 test results before boarding, all travelers coming from abroad—U.S. citizens and permanent residents included—will have to follow CDC recommendations and quarantine after international travel for 10 days upon arrival. The executive order expands on the previous administration’s pre-testing policy, set to go into effect on January 26. 

Anyone traveling to the States by plane “will need to test before they get onto that plane before they depart and quarantine when they arrive in America,” the president said in a press conference. The official details around the quarantine after international travel—including when it will go into effect—are under review by a number of federal agencies that deal with air travel and public health.

In the next two weeks, that pre-testing policy will also be under review

The Importance Of Leisure Travel For Business Owners

Founder & CEO of Sawyer & Company, a SoHo, New York-based boutique design studio.

Travel has undoubtedly been one of the most heavily impacted sectors throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. As work lives experience a major shift, the massive role that travel plays in how people function, interact and do business with one another has become increasingly apparent — from global conferences to travel for meetings to corporate retreats.

Quarantine And Tests, As Covid-19 Third Wave Surges

When the World Health Organization described January, it said it was going to be “a tough one…It really is all hands on deck.” This is evident from the picture in mid January across Europe and the U.K.:

The EU uses a traffic light map from the ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) as a guideline to the high risk countries (in red) from which travel should be limited–there are no longer any green (safe) countries across Europe, with the exception of one corner of Greece.

The restrictions put in place across Europe in November and December appear to have slowed the virus, and the U.S. overtook the EU in number of recorded cases.
