Covid testing

Do I need to show proof of a negative Covid test if I'm flying domestically? (From Orlando to Denver) What if I have proof of vaccination? Also, does my daughter need one too? She will be traveling as a lap infant.

There are no COIVD testing requirements if you are travelling domestically.

Just to add if you traveling to Hawaii you do need COVID-19 Testing 72 hours prior to Flight

No.

 

Side note: where are people getting these ideas from? Never once has it been communicated anywhere that negative tests are required to fly domestically for any airline. I would love to know where people are getting their information.

You need to have a test to avoid quarantining for 10 days in Hawaii. And, the test has to be from a specific testing centers or they won't accept it.

Apparently, Hawaii doesn't think much of the Mayo Clinic. 

 

There is a couple from North Carolina as well. I read that on Apple News this morning, but it is behind a paywall.
