Asia's Tech News Daily

Biden is considering whether to mandate a seven-day quarantine for all travelers returning to the U.S.Travelers would not be able to forego the quarantine, even with a negative Covid test, and could be fined for flouting itIt would be the first time a federal fine is linked to quarantine or testing measures for U.S. travelers

The Biden administration is considering whether to force all travelers returning to the U.S. to quarantine for seven days to curb the spread of the potentially dangerous omicron variant – and may fine those who refuse, three federal health officials told the Washington Post.

Travelers would not be able to forgo the potential quarantine mandate, even with a negative Covid test. It comes as Biden deliberates his winter Covid strategy and would be the first time federal fines are linked to quarantine and testing measures for U.S. travelers.

Biden’s tentative plan would also require everyone entering the country to be tested one day before boarding flights, regardless of their vaccination status or country from which they’re leaving. Another requirement could force all travelers to get tested again within three to five days of arrival.
