OF­FI­CIALS WORK­ING ON PLAN TO RE­VIVE IN­TER­NA­TIONAL TRAVEL

Calgary Herald - - WORLD -

U.S. Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo said Wed­nes­day the United States was work­ing with coun­tries in Europe and else­where on how to re­open for travel, af­ter de­tails emerged of Euro­pean Union cri­te­ria that could keep out Amer­i­cans due to high rates of coro­n­avirus in­fec­tions.

“We’re work­ing on find­ing the right way to do that, the right tim­ing to do it, the right tac­tics to have in place,” Pom­peo told a news con­fer­ence. The Euro­pean Union hopes to re­open bor­ders be­gin­ning in July, but will re­view na­tions’ COVID-19 sit­u­a­tion fort­nightly. The U.S., where Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump banned Euro­pean vis­i­tors at the start of the cri­sis, has recorded more than 2.4 mil­lion cases — the most in the world.
