China Toughens Covid Testing Rules for U.S. Travelers as Omicron Rages
What’s new: The Chinese Embassy in the United States has updated its preflight Covid-19 testing requirements for all China-bound travelers, including foreign and Chinese nationals, according to a Wednesday statement. The new requirements come amid a surge in Covid-19 cases of infections by the more transmissible Omicron variant in the U.S.
All travelers are required to stay at their city of departure for seven days of personal health observation. During the period, they are also required to complete two rounds of pre-flight tests at designated testing agencies — on the first day of the seven-day stay, and within 48 hours prior to their flight, respectively.
