Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday said he would support vaccine requirements for air travel, reports The Hill.

Fauci made the comments during an interview with the Skimm This podcast, filmed last week. The episode will air Thursday.

Fauci’s support comes after Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., introduced legislation requiring vaccine proof or a negative COVID-19 test for all airline and train passengers.

Beyer’s bill, called the Safe Travel Act, requires all Amtrak and commercial airline travelers to either have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or to provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of traveling.

It also mandates Amtrak and commercial airline employees, contractors and subcontractors to show either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test at least once a week, the Hill adds.
