The European Union is opening its borders to some foreign visitors, but not Americans.
The E.U. approved travelers from 15 nations, but will not allow tourists from countries that are hot spots for the coronavirus outbreak. That includes the United States, Brazil and Russia.
Canada, Australia and New Zealand are on the approved list. So is China if that country agrees to let in E.U. visitors.
The ban is based on the place of residence, so Americans traveling from an approved nation would still be denied entry. The ruling is not legally binding, however. If any nation allows visitors from an unapproved country, they could in turn have their borders closed to their neighbors.
