Everyone flying to the United States from another country will need to test negative before they get on that plane before they depart, and quarantine when they arrive in America. Joe Biden

The section of the order that's about international travel states that travellers entering the U.S. are required to comply with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

That includes following the recommended quarantine and isolation periods after arriving in the U.S. along with testing requirements.

Biden reiterated these rules during an address and said that it applies to "everyone flying to the United States from another country."

When it comes to quarantining, the CDC said that everyone should get tested three to five days after they travel and stay home for seven days even if the test comes back negative.

If people who travelled don't get tested, they should isolate for 10 days after arrival.

Canada also has requirements for travellers entering the country, including Canadians coming home, like mandatory quarantine and pre-flight testing.
