TSA and CDC updates – Aug. 2022

By August 5, 2022Featured
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), along with major airlines, are encouraging passengers to sign up for TSA PreCheck®. In June 2022, 94% of TSA PreCheck® passengers waited less than 5 minutes during the screening process. Families are welcome, and children under 12 can accompany a parent/guardian. TSA PreCheck® is available with 81 airlines and at more than 200 airports.
July 18, 2022, The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its “high” risk category for travel on Monday with five places and discontinued its Covid-19 program for cruise ships. The agency said on its website that it will continue to publish guidance for cruise ships, but its voluntary program for cruise ship monitoring has ended.
CDC is no longer requiring air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight.
