European Union officials are racing to determine who can visit the bloc beginning July 1,

as countries try to restart travel while keeping new coronavirus infections at bay.

A draft list of acceptable travelers includes those from China and Vietnam, but visitors

from the U.S., Russia and Brazil will not be welcome, according to the document seen by The

New York Times. A final decision is expected early next week, though European officials aid

it was highly unlikely an exception would be made for the United States.

Prohibiting American travelers from entering the European Union has significant

ramifications and is a blow to President Trump’s handling of the virus. Millions of

American tourists visit Europe every summer. Business travel is common, given the huge

economic ties between the United States and the E.U.
