What about the EU?
Unfortunately, the EU hasn’t yet lifted the travel ban on US tourists. The ban will remain in place until positive COVID-19 test results in the US are at or below the EU average, which was 14 per 100,000 residents as of June 15th — compared to 107 per 100,000 in the US.
International travel during the COVID-19 pandemic
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that travel of any kind “increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19” compared to staying at home. If you feel sick or have come into contact without someone who has COVID-19 within the past 14 days, then you should not travel.
That said, most travel providers, including airlines, hotels and tour operators, have heightened hygiene and safety measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19. For example, Delta has instituted electrostatic spraying, mandatory mask requirements, hand sanitizer stations and more. Check each travel provider’s official policy to understand how it has responded to COVID-19.
