Americans Are Officially Excluded From Visiting European Union
If you’re hoping to visit Europe this year, looks like you’re going to have to settle for somewhere else.
According to reports, the U.S. is not included on a list of 15 countries whose citizens will be able to visit the European Union when it reopens on July 1 following the shut down.
The decision comes as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the U.S., with several states seeing surges and record-breaking daily infection rates.
The U.S. is currently the epicenter of the pandemic, with more than 2.5 million cases and upward of 126,400 deaths as of this morning, according to the New York Times.
Meanwhile, Canada, Japan and Australia have all been given the OK to travel to the E.U.
The full list of countries that made the cut can be found in a press release from the E.U.
Well, looks like we’re here for a while, kids…
