EU SETS OUT GUIDELINES FOR EASING TOURISM, CROSS-BORDER TRAVEL

The European Commission has set out guidelines to allow the resumption of tourism so that people may be able to stay in hotels, eat in restaurants or go to beaches safely in the coming months despite the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Reuters report written by Philip Blenkinsop and Foo Yun CHee on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.

Some European Union (EU) member-states are already relaxing their restrictions as the COVID-19 pandemic rampaged across the 26-member bloc, with France allowing more people out into the streets and Greece, which suffered a low 155 fatalities due to the pandemic, relaxing rules to encourage more tourists to come.


According to Blenkinsop and Foo, the EC also wanted EU governments to take into account personal considerations to allow people to visit family and loved ones who live in different countries in the EU.


However, Reuters reported that EC is also proposing that its restrictions on non-essential travel to the 26-nation Schengen zone should be extended by 30 days to June 15. #coronavirusimpact #COVID19
