US drops Covid testing

In one of the most anticipated travel developments this year, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is poised to lift its requirement for travelers to test negative for Covid-19 before entering the United States, CNN learned on Friday.
The measure has been in place since January 2021. The move is likely to encourage travelers around the world to plan a summer vacation in the States and encourage more US travelers to venture abroad knowing they're less likely to get stranded overseas with a positive test. Air travel has been far from smooth this season so far.

personally, this frightens me a little. The Pandemic is still with us, and people still need to take precautions to prevent its spread.

we both still use masks in public and keep hand sanitizer handy. we wash our hands frequently nad for long periods of time.
She wanted to know how to best use a home COVID test and I was able to show her how, cementing my own knowledge at the time.
