U.S. citizens will not be welcome in Denmark, the Netherlands, and other European Union (EU) countries unless they are immunized against the deadly disease.
Denmark and the Netherlands will deny entry to any American who is not vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, even if they produce a negative test result or proof of recovery.
The strict vaccine requirement came just days after the EU removed the United States from its safe travel list. This is mainly due to a jump in CCP virus cases across America according to USA Today.
Entry requirements for fully vaccinated U.S. travelers remain unchanged. They are still exempt from testing and quarantine in most countries.
The only exception is the Netherlands where U.S. travelers will be forced to quarantine for 10 days, even if they have already received their shots. This isolation period can be reduced if passengers test negative on day-five and children under the age of 12 are exempt, according to the government’s website.
Bulgaria separately banned all travel from the United States while Italy added testing and self-isolation restrictions for U.S. travelers.
A daily average of 1,114 deaths were recorded across all 50 states. Federal health experts reported more than 150,000 new cases each day according to the New York Post.
Officials claim 53% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, compared to about 70% in the EU.
