OFFICIALS WORKING ON PLAN TO REVIVE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
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.
