    Covid-19: Travel Restrictions to Europe and US

    President Emmanuel Macron has floated the prospect of a freeze on international travel into Europe through September, given the pathogen’s late arrival in the United States and Africa – and the potential for a second wave of infections in Asia.
    “To keep new cases from entering our shores, we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days,” Trump said. “These restrictions will be adjusted subject to conditions on the ground.”

    Despite that language, a proclamation from the president issued shortly after his speech did not include any references to a 30-day timeline. Instead it said the restrictions would “remain in effect until terminated by the president.” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is expected to advise Trump on that decision every two weeks.

    EU and U.S. officials do not appear to be coordinating on a plan to eventually ease their restrictions. The State Department declined to comment, and the Department of Health and Human Services did not respond to requests for comment.

    End of May and it's still very unclear. Don't think trips back to Europe and US will be easily achieved until August/September at the very least
