I’ve had my heart set on vacationing in England before summer’s end, but this man-eating virus might shatter my plans…
Today the European Commission made an official request to the European Parliament and European Council to extend the travel ban for another month, to June 15, 2020.
The temporary travel restriction applies to “all non-essential travel from third countries to the EU+ area,” reads the communication. The European countries will prioritize opening borders between EU countries before opening up the bloc to the rest of the world.
Rats! I hope the gates of Europe open to the rest of the world before autumn. Although, despite my disappointment, I do understand the concerns of the European Commission. COVID-19 is not a joke. Don’t forget that this pandemic has already annihilated .0005 of the English populace! With odds like that, I would likely be wiped out by the Corona Beast immediately upon exiting the Heathrow Airport.
