What Travel Expert and Consumer Advocate, Christopher Elliot, could say about New Travel Rules to Stop the Spread of COVID-19:

Most predict that these measures will curb the spread of the virus, including dangerous new variants from England and South Africa. However this sets a problematic precedent.  –Chris Elliott

There are new rules for airline passengers, but the biggest changes may lie ahead:
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) last week issued a rule requiring travelers to wear a mask on planes, in airport terminals, and on mass transit.
  • If you’re flying back to the U.S., you need to show a negative COVID-19 test.
  • But there may be more ahead: The government is also considering a new rule to require anyone flying in the U.S. to show a negative test.
  • I look at the present and future of air travel in my latest newsletter.
