White House considering lifting European travel restrictions

The White House is strongly considering lifting sweeping restrictions on travel from the European Union and the United Kingdom, an administration official confirmed.

Discussions have been ongoing for several weeks about lifting the restrictions, which ban entry to most foreigners who have been to Europe in the two weeks before their arrival in the US. Reuters first reported on the discussions.

An administration official told CNN that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has expressed some reservations about lifting the restrictions, but the agency is not expected to block the move.

The discussions come at a time when the US is experiencing its worst surge of coronavirus, and as many European countries also face higher levels of coronavirus cases.

President Trump has yet to sign off on the move, but once he does, the restrictions are unlikely to be lifted until the US and European countries have established a protocol for safe travel between the two countries.

The White House did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention directed CNN to the White House and the Health and Human Services Department when asked for comment.

Trump first banned most travel from the European Union and UK in March as the pandemic escalated. The EU soon followed suit, restricting most travel from the US and other countries.

Possibly, but with the prevalence there Iíd suggest itís riskier for those of us this side of the pond!

Iím hoping to get to the USA sept/Oct time, hopefully all vaccines will be done and the world will be a safer place. Lifting restrictions now seems foolhardy, but what do I know haha

Excellent news! Just hope 'safe travel' doesn't mean a quarantine in the US.

I don't think so as as you are not out and about putting money into the us economy and people won't travel to spend 2 weeks in quarantine. It will be covid test/proof of vaccination before you go out and covid test on return.
