Delta Air Lines requiring COVID testing for NY-bound UK travelers

(Reuters) - Delta Air Lines confirmed Monday it will require pre-departure COVID tests before passengers leave from the United Kingdom to New York.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo first disclosed the decision on Twitter after British Airways earlier said it would take the step as international leaders react to news of a highly infectious new strain. A Delta spokeswoman confirmed the decision.
