U.S. govt won't impose COVID-19 screenings for flights from Britain - sources

WASHINGTON/CHICAGO, Dec 22 (Reuters) - The U.S. government does not intend to impose COVID-19 screenings for passengers traveling from Britain after the emergence of a highly infectious new coronavirus variant there, people briefed on the decision said.

A White House coronavirus task force discussed requiring negative pre-flight tests after a meeting on Monday, but the government has decided not to take any action for the time being, the people said. (Reporting by David Shepardson and Tracy Rucinski; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
