India Now at Low Risk of COVID-19 for United States Travellers
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) eased government COVID-19 travel ratings for India to "Level 1: Low" from "Level 3: High."
Travellers from India to the US are required to submit a negative report for COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours of the flight.
The CDC has five levels for Covid risk in different countries ranging from a “very high” level 4 to “low” level 1, followed only by a “level unknown” rating.
The CDC site also added that Children under 2 years of age do not need to test.
“Anyone 2 years or older should properly wear a well-fitting mask in indoor public spaces,” the CDC site added about India.
The travel and airline industry was the hardest hit sector when the pandemic first started.
