Citing draft lists of acceptable travelers, the New York Times reported from Brussels on Tuesday, European Union (EU) member states that are re-opening up their borders and lifting travel restrictions, are prepared to bar entry to Americans.

The US has failed miserably to control the coronavirus pandemic, as the second wave of the virus hit some of the states in the US.

EU diplomat told Reuters: The bloc’s executive Commission had proposed three criteria for allowing in passengers from third countries, including the epidemiological situation of that country, but EU member countries would have to determine what the relevant measurements and thresholds should be.

“There’s no list (of countries), just a list of criteria,” another EU diplomat said.

EU states will discuss the criteria on Wednesday, although there is no guarantee that a decision will be reached then, Reuters reports.
