EU confirms end of travel restrictions for US citizens

The European Council updated on Friday the list of countries for which the travel restrictions should be suspended, confirming previous reports that passengers from the United States will be allowed to enter the European Union without a mandatory quarantine.

The council's statement explained that the "list of countries, special administrative regions and other entities and territorial authorities for which travel restrictions should be lifted" has been expanded, with the total number now at 17.

The decision isn't legally binding for the EU member states, which all reserve the right to implement the recommendation in the way that best fits their domestic situation in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.
