England is trying to make the most of this year’s summer tourism by lifting its mandatory 14-day quarantine restriction on travelers.

Nations such as France, Italy, and Spain, amongst dozens of other nations,  are allowed to enter England with no restrictions, U.S. travelers will have to continue to isolate for two weeks. 

This decision comes after COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the U.S., a result of President Trump’s mishandling of the pandemic. 

U.S. travelers are still able to enter England but will have to agree to isolate for 14 days. Restrictions for other nations will be lifted on July 10th. Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland will be implementing their own travel regulations. 

In March, the U.S. banned nonessential visitors from Britain because of their COVID-19 case numbers at the time. Since then, tables have turned drastically and the U.S. is now a pandemic hotspot. 

The British government has marked countries as being either green, yellow, or red in terms of COVID-19 cases and the U.S. is currently marked red.
