European Union Set to Ban Americans from Traveling to Europe

This would be an unprecedented slap in the face to the United States, and would deal a major blow to Europe’s tourism economy.

In yet another bit of shocking news coming to us from 2020, it appears as though Americans may no longer be welcomed overseas.

As racial tensions in the United States continue to distract Americans from the threat of coronavirus, cases of COVID-19 continue to grow.  A great many states are experiencing an increase in infections, and at a time where many citizens are just unwilling to practice social distancing as vehemently as they once did.  This is an exponential problem that takes a week or two to truly manifest itself, meaning that without action, there is no telling just how widespread the virus could become.

This has frightened European leaders, who are now proposing drastic action.

The European Union is planning to reopen its borders on July 1, allowing some travelers in for the first time since the closure as the coronavirus pandemic worsened in March.

However, Americans might not be welcome.

The EU is considering barring Americans from entering the bloc because the United States has not adequately controlled the spread of COVID-19, The New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing draft lists of travelers who would be allowed.

Travelers from Russia and Brazil would also be blocked from entering EU countries under the lists, according to The Times.

There could be a bit of reciprocation at play here, however.

In early March, the Trump administration barred travel to the US from much of Europe, citing outbreaks in northern Italy, Germany, and elsewhere in the European Union. The prohibition has not been lifted, even as Europe has largely contained its outbreaks.

This could have a massive negative impact on the European economy, of course, as American tourisms makes up a rather sizable chunk of income in certain areas of the old world.
