CDC Travel Announcement: CDC Quarantine Officers Will Now Spot-Check Travelers for Compliance to Rules

The CDC announced they sending CDC quarantine officers to spot-check passengers for compliance of rules.

HotAir reported:

There are some exceptions to the new requirements. Children under the age of 18 and people from countries experiencing a shortage of COVID-19 vaccines will be exempt from providing proof of vaccination. Beginning November 8, foreign travelers described as non-immigrant adults traveling to the U.S. will have to be fully vaccinated. All travelers will have to be tested before boarding a plane to the U.S. Tightened restrictions for American and foreign citizens not fully vaccinated will be in place…

…The U.S. will accept any FDA-approved vaccine for regular or emergency use or approved by the World Health Organization. These include Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca and China’s Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines. Mixing and matching of approved shots will be permitted.

The airlines are stuck with enforcing the new requirements. They will be required to verify vaccine records and match them against identity information. Here’s a new twist – how do quarantine officers sound?

Quarantine officers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will spot-check passengers who arrive in the U.S. for compliance, according to an administration official. Airlines that don’t enforce the requirements could be subject to penalties of up to nearly $35,000 per violation.
