New travel restrictions take effect, requiring COVID testing for vaccinated travelers entering U.S.

President Biden's latest COVID-19 rule goes into effect Monday, requiring all international travelers, including Americans, to test negative for COVID-19 within 24 hours of their departure to the United States – whether or not they are vaccinated.
 
The White House announced Thursday that the U.S. will "tighten pre-departure testing protocols by requiring all inbound international travelers to test within one day of departure globally, regardless of nationality or vaccination status." A senior administration official confirmed to Fox News Friday that the restriction will go into effect Monday. 

"This tighter testing timeline provides an added degree of public health protection as scientists continue to assess the Omicron variant.," the White House added.
