Tourists will be able to holiday in the EU from next month, so long as they are vaccinated or from a nation with low rates of coronavirus such as the UK, the European Commission
proposed yesterday. The plan would relax the rules on non-essential travel from the start of June at the latest, paving the way for summer holidays on the continent. Countries qualify if they have fewer than 100 cases per 100,000 people, which would put Britain on the safe list. However, Boris
Johnson warned against the UK opening up too quickly, saying there would be “an influx of disease” if too many travel restrictions were lifted. The PM suggested “some opening up” was likely this month, but that he would be “cautious” about the number of countries on the green list.
