EU executive urges travel reopening ahead of summer


The European Commission proposed on Monday that all EU countries gradually ease travel measures over the summer as the number of Covid-19 vaccinations continues to grow and the severity of the pandemic in the bloc diminishes.

The European Union executive, which is seeking to harmonize travel measures across the bloc, said that – according to its recommendation – fully vaccinated people should be exempt from testing or quarantines when traveling from one EU country to another. [Reuters]
