US to lift COVID test mandate for entry

By: Staff Reporter, SKNVibes.com

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - THE United States is said to be lifting the COVID-19 testing requirement for international travellers’ entry to the country as of tomorrow evening (Jun. 12).
     
    Like many countries around the world, the United States mandated a negative test for entry into the country, and CNN has reported that the Biden Administration was set to lift the requirements with a decision expected to have been announced yesterday (Jun. 10).
     
    The mandate was set to expire at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow and the change would likely be in place for 90 days, CNN reported.
     
    The network also reported that a senior administration official noted that the change came about because of lobbying by the “travel industry” over the last several months and that it was also based on the data.
     
    “I’m glad CDC suspended the burdensome Coronavirus testing requirement for international travelers, and I’ll continue to do all I can to support the strong recovery of our hospitality industry,” CNN
    quoted Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D. Nevada) as saying.
