U.S. Lawmakers Push for COVID-19 Vaccine or Negative Test for Domestic Air Travel

On 12NOV, three dozen U.S. lawmakers urged President Joe Bident to require domestic airline passengers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or show a negative test result. “This is a necessary and long overdue step toward ensuring all Americans feel safe and confident while travelling and reduce the chances of yet another devastating winter surge,” said the letter from members of Congress led by Representatives Don Beyer and Ritchie Torres and Senator Dianne Feinstein. The letter praised the Biden administration for adopting vaccine requirements for international air travel, and said that applying a similar strategy to domestic air travel would ensure Americans can travel safely to see their loved ones during the holidays while also limiting household introduction and spread of COVID-19 from visiting family and friends.”
