If you are travelling to the United States, new COVID-19 testing rules are now in effect.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revised its current global testing order, to shorten the timeline for required testing for all international air travellers to one day before departure to the US.

This revision strengthens already robust protocols in place for international travel, including requirements for foreign travellers to be fully vaccinated.

Public affairs officer at the US Embassy in Barbados, Larry Socha, says the top priority for the US is keeping travellers and Americans safe.

Mr Socha was a guest on CBC TV 8s, Morning Report.
