Read Time:37 Seconds

May 5. Over 260 travel industry and business organizations are calling on the Biden administration to end its COVID-19 testing requirement for vaccinated international passengers entering the U.S.

Why it matters: The travel industry has taken multiple blows over the last two years due to the pandemic and emerging variants. Companies are looking to rebound despite another rise in cases.

What they’re saying: “Given the slow economic recovery of the business and international travel sectors, and in light of medical advancements and the improved public health metrics in the U.S., we encourage you to immediately remove the inbound testing requirement for vaccinated air travelers,” said the letter addressed to incoming White House COVID-19 response coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha.
