CDC order signed 1/25/21, requiring a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 for all airline or other aircraft passengers arriving into the United States from any foreign country, effective 1/26/21. This order supersedes the prior order signed on 1/12/21. This new order clarifies the exemption categories for federal law enforcement and U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) personnel. The new order also replaces the previous language concerning the ability of airlines and aircraft operators to request specific waivers and replaces it with a limited humanitarian exemption category.
