Is a (negative) Covid test needed to cross back into the US (with our car and RV) at Nogales?

If yes, what is a good place to do the test?

Thanks, Jorn

US Citizens do not have to do anything to return to the US.

Non US Citizens have to provide proof of Covid vaccination, but not a booster to enter. This is as of January 22, 2022

Talleyho69, looks like you read the same thing I read on Dept. of Homeland Security guidelines. But there was some additional info regarding US citizens and permanent US residents; if you exhibit Covid symptoms at the border, as per CDC guidelines, you are sent to a medical check station for verification and asked to isolate on the US side if you test positive. Homeland Security cross references this additional info over to CDC guidelines.

Charleston, I am a US citizen. I have crossed the border dozens of times since covid began. CBP isn't looking for any covid symptoms.

I'm sure you are correct, but supposedly the rules change January 22.

I have visions of the border agents using a hand held skin reading thermometer on the forehead of everyone in every vehicle that enters the US, then if the numbers aren't perfect, sending them to the CDC tent where they are given a handout suggesting they self isolate at home and how to do it.

Sounds terribly efficient.

"Sounds terribly efficient." Does'n't it though? LOL!
