(NATIONAL) If you're traveling abroad by plane this summer, you no longer have to show a negative COVID-19 test or a recovery from COVID-19 to re-enter the U.S. 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) made the announcement on Friday.

The change went into effect on Sunday June 12. 

Reasons for rescinding the order included COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and high rates of vaccine and infection-induced immunity among the United States population. 

The CDC said it will reassess the need for testing requirements in the future if necessary.
