BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — A COVID-19 test will not be required for you to fly within the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention decided not to recommend tests for domestic air travel.

Federal officials said this past week that they had been considering making it a requirement.

For now, the agency will continue to review options for containing the spread of the virus on planes.

Even though there is no test recommendation, the CDC does not encourage people to travel during the pandemic.
