The COVID-19 hysteria has brought us many things like excessive lockdowns and useless mask-wearing.
It has adversely affected small businesses, people’s mental health, and children’s education.
And now it looks like you could need more than a boarding pass to fly the friendly skies.
As if the requirements to fly aren’t onerous enough these days with TSA pat-downs and machines screening your laptops, now the Biden administration is considering mandatory COVID tests for all domestic air travel.
Dr. Marty Cetron, director for the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters Tuesday that the administration is “actively looking” into imposing the domestic travel testing requirement.
Cetron said, “We also have to look at the possible planning in domestic travel. We’re actively looking at it. We realize that there’s been a dramatic evolution and increase in both testing platforms and testing capacity.”
So now anyone who wants to visit Grandma Tilly on the other side of the country has to pass a COVID test before they board the plane.
The conversation is “ongoing,” and the Biden administration is working to determine which type of testing would be used and where the testing would actually take place.
Cetron went on to say that this process would be essential to combating the pandemic.
So far, representatives for the CDC are not responding to news outlets requesting further information on Cetron’s remarks.
The requirement to be tested for domestic travel would expand America’s new international testing requirement that took effect Tuesday, January 26, 2021. It requires all U.S.-bound travelers to test negative for COVID-19 within three days of boarding their flights or present proof of having recovered from the virus.
Once again, the government is imposing outrageous, oppressive regulations on the American people.
A mandate such as this will be impossible for people to avoid that need to travel. If your job depends on you traveling in the United States, you will have no way to avoid these tests.
This is nothing more than government overreach and the Biden administration trying to flex their political power by keeping the American people down.
