Comrade Buttigieg: We’re In ‘Active Conversation’ With CDC About Requiring COVID Test Before Domestic Flights


Daily Wire: Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said during an interview on Sunday that the Biden administration is in active conversations with the CDC about whether it will require American citizens to have a negative coronavirus test before they are allowed to fly to another U.S. state.

Buttigieg made the remark when asked during an Axios interview what he thought “of requiring a COVID test before someone flies even domestically?”

“Well, there’s an active conversation with the CDC right now, what I can tell you is this going to be guided by data, by science, by medicine, and by the input of the people are actually going to have to carry this out,” Buttigieg responded. “But here’s the thing, the safer we can make air travel in terms of perception as well as reality, the more people are going to be ready to get back in the air.”

Buttigieg defended President Joe Biden’s decision to kill the Keystone XL Pipeline during his Senate confirmation hearing last month. Read More
