May 3

This market resolves to YES if I, a U.S. citizen, am required to show a negative COVID-19 test in order to board my flight back to the U.S. on May 2nd. This is the ruling I expect will require me to get a test. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html#:~:text=Air%20passengers%20traveling%20to%20the,for%20all%20passengers%20before%20boarding. Other countries have already lifted this requirement. Here's some recent discussion as whether or when the U.S. should or will end this requirement: https://www.travelweekly.com/Travel-News/Airline-News/Travel-groups-push-to-end-Covid-entry-tests https://www.washingtonpost.com/travel/2022/04/12/us-travel-testing-requirement-covid/

Resolved to No because I was not required to show a negative test at any point in the process of flying into the US. The requirement was still clearly in effect as I approached my flight date, so I still got tested. LEVEL airlines never asked me to upload any documentation. They had me check a box in an online form that said I had gotten a test. But as the market is written, I’m resolving it to NO because I was never required to show a negative test. The airline said when we landed that we may need to show a negative test when we arrive in the US, but that never happened either. This market entered a much grayer area than I anticipated, and I am pretty surprised to be resolving it to a no.
