The Index Today

The State Department said on Thursday that the United States is waiving a requirement for negative COVID-19 tests from Americans leaving Belarus or Russia to travel home.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said it would exercise its discretion to allow travel by U.S. citizens, permanent residents and holders of valid immigrant visas who were in either country by a Feb. 28 cut-off date.

Earlier news made a similar waiver for Americans leaving Ukraine who had been in the country by Feb. 10.
