The European Union will reopen its borders on July 1, but will exclude travelers from the United States.

Member countries of the E.U. will open their borders tomorrow, which have mostly been closed since COVID-19 hit in mid-March.

The following 15 countries have been designated as safe and will be admitted: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.

To determine the list, the E.U. looked at cases per 100,000, testing capabilities, contract tracing and social distancing. The U.S. is seeing almost 10 times the number of cases per 100,000 people compared to Europe.

Restrictions will be evaluated every two weeks.

The United Kingdom, which is no longer part of the E.U., continues to allow travelers from the U.S. - but imposes a 14 day quarantine period on arrival.
