June 16th Travel News Update - Europe opens up to Americans

Is anyone planning to visit Europe from America this year?
Here are the latest travel details:

16th June - EU ambassadors agreed to add the US to the safe list for nonessential travel, and the move is expected to go into effect Friday, The New York Times reported. This means all Americans, vaccinated or not, will be able to travel to any of the 27 EU member countries for any reason.
