The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidance for people traveling within the United States.
The agency now urges all domestic travelers to “consider getting tested as close to the time of departure as possible (no more than three days) before your trip,” according to its Covid-19 website updates this month.

Different rules for international travel

These domestic updates are separate from CDC guidance for those traveling to the US, including US territories, from abroad.
Those travelers must have a negative coronavirus test within a day of travel or submit proof that they’ve recovered from Covid-19 in the previous 90 days. Children younger than 2 do not need to test.
The CDC also recommends getting tested three to five days after international travel to the United States.
Additionally, foreign citizens must be vaccinated for Covid-19 to enter the United States. No such requirement exists for US citizens, US nationals, and lawful permanent residents traveling domestically or internationally.
Still, the agency recommends that people be up-to-date with vaccines before any air travel.
