Southern Border Toolkit for Partners

As of 12:01AM ET on June 12, 2022, CDC will no longer require air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight. For more information, see Rescission: Requirement for Negative Pre-Departure COVID-19 Test Result or Documentation of Recovery from COVID-19 for all Airline or Other Aircraft Passengers Arriving into the United States from Any Foreign Country.

CDC created this toolkit for partners – including state and local health departments, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and community outreach groups – to provide timely, effective, and culturally appropriate COVID-19 messaging to serve those who live, work, and travel along the United States-Mexico border.

This toolkit helps partners share CDC resources and content with their community, as well as develop their own COVID-19 materials.
