COVID-19 Travel Test: Expert Advice

It’s the third summer of the pandemic, and now we know one thing: If you’re traveling, you may need to think about if, when, where, and how to get tested for COVID-19.

If you are a US traveler to another country, you will need to show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test (or documentation of a recent recovery from COVID-19) before you can board a plane back to the United States.

Plus you may need or want to get tested for COVID-19 one or more times while you are away. It will depend on where you go, what you do, who you spend time with, and how you feel day in and day out.

In general, the higher the rates of COVID-19 at your destination, the more likely it is that testing will be part of your travel experience. With infections increasing again in many states and other countries, it’s important to stay informed — and prepare for testing.
