The Biden administration announced Friday that it's ending a requirement for airplane travelers to test negative for Covid-19 before entering the U.S.

White House assistant press secretary Kevin Munoz said that the U.S. would "end Covid-19 testing requirement for air travelers entering the country" in a tweet linking to a CNN story that broke the news.

Munoz said the president's work vaccines and treatments was "critical" to the development, and that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will monitor "based on the science and in context of circulating variants."

A senior Biden administration official said the CDC made its determination “based on the science and data that this requirement is no longer necessary at this time.”

“The CDC will do a reassessment of this decision in 90 days," the official said, adding that if there is "a need to reinstate a pre-departure testing requirement, including due to a new, concerning variant, CDC will not hesitate to act.”
