New York Gov wants pre-flight covid testing for UK-NY flights

NY Gov Andrew Cuomo wants all flights from the UK to New York to require a negative covid test from passengers before allowing them to board. He said BA, Delta and Virgin Atlantic have agreed.

Seems like a reasonable request to me. As Cuomo points out, there are at least 120 countries that currently require a negative covid test to enter. He also points out that such measures imposed by state or city are not very effective, and he's asking why the USA isn't on that list of countries that require a negative test. That seems like a fair question too.

Of course, there are plenty of people who will cheat, lie, and break the rules - because they don't like rules and think they don't apply to them. So, if the rules are implemented, they should come with some consequences.

Couldnt agree more. I just edited "rules" to "laws"

Slickwarp, please tell us what rules/laws that James E has broken? He has explained in detail what he has done to travel and stayed within the rules.

Just because YOU don't like the idea of anyone traveling means those are the rules/laws.

I’m surprised he doesn’t want to out them all in nursing homes

James, you're right. I haven't been responding to these type of threads for awhile but I just thought it was unfair.

I lost it the other day too. Ended up with a decent post being deleted. I need to learn to just suck it up.

I honestly scratch my head over the personification or anthropomorphism of the state that seems to be trending - Whitmer, Newsom, Cuomo are somehow authority figures that need to be resisted, rather than the gov'ts of MI CA NY making considered decisions based on conditions and desired outcomes. So many people keep acting like they are young at heart, just not in a good way. ( I mean juvenile, for those who can't take a hint.)
