Airlines must confirm the negative test result or proof of recovery for all passengers two years of age and over prior to boarding. ​Airlines must deny boarding of passengers who do not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery.

After arriving at the United States from one of these countries, the CDC recommends that travelers stay home and monitor their health for 14 days. To get more up-to-date information go to the official USA Travel Restrictions Page. If you are planning to travel overseas or if you are currently overseas and planning to return to the U.S., you should contact your airline for specific information about testing requirements for travelers. Because airlines may adopt and modify their own specific policies to implement CDC’s new rule, you should contact the carrier for your U.S.-bound flight and not rely on information from other carriers or information or experience from previous trips.  You should also contact your local state/city where you live to see if there are any restrictions or quarantines in effect upon your return from travel.
