(ReliableNews.org) – European Union (EU) countries are preparing to open their borders again after closing to international travel. Many nations, including the US, have taken steps to limit travel in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. Now, the EU is considering a plan targeting travelers from places with active outbreaks and America is on its list.
According to multiple reports, EU leaders may ban Americans from traveling to their countries while the pandemic continues. One diplomat told CNN they want to keep people coming from countries with the most virus activity out.

Recommendations on how to safely open will come from the European Commission, but they’re not mandatory. Every country’s leadership will ultimately decide what to do. If the EU does ban Americans, there’s sure to be some backlash. President Trump isn’t the type of leader to allow the EU to target US citizens.
