The Center for Disease Control (CDC) on Thursday issued a new guidance requiring travelers flying from the United Kingdom to the United States to provide a negative Wuhan coronavirus test. The new requirement is set to go into effect on Monday.
According to the Associated Press, airline passengers must provide a negative COVID-19 test within three days of their trip. The results have to be provided directly to the airline.

The CDC recommends that three to five days after travel or after you've been around people without a mask on, you get tested.” pic.twitter.com/eQ3MvUEOzF
