E.U. Bars Travelers from U.S. Citing Coronavirus Concerns

Most U.S. travelers will be barred from entering the European Union (E.U.) after it reopens its borders on July 1 because the coronavirus (COVID-19) is still far too prevalent in the U.S., European officials announced today.

The E.U.'s 27 members have been drawing up a list of countries whose virus levels are deemed low enough to allow people from those places to travel into the bloc, which has been mostly sealed off since March.

That list of safe countries was officially announced in a statement from the Council of the European Union on Tuesday. The U.S. — which has the most coronavirus cases and deaths in the world — was not on it.
