Biden Weighs 7-Day Quarantine for Returning Travelers Due to Omicron

The Biden administration is currently weighing whether to impose a 7-day quarantine for all travelers returning to the U.S. in order to curb the spread of the omicron COVID variant. Those who refuse might possibly be fined.

Even a negative test or full vaccination would not exempt a traveler from the quarantine period, the Daily Mail reported. Biden is currently deliberating his winter COVID strategy and plans on announcing it Thursday.

The Daily Mail continues Biden’s tentative plan would also put a requirement in place for everyone entering the U.S. to be tested for COVID before boarding flights, no matter where the person is traveling from or his or her vaccination status.
