The European Union announced Monday that it is recommending its member states reinstate travel restrictions for American tourists. According to a report from the Washington Post, the restrictions could exempt vaccinated persons from the ban.
A European travel ban was last issued on Americans before June 2020. On June 30th, the Union lifted restrictions.
“The Council recommendation is not a legally binding instrument,” the announcement read. “The authorities of the member states remain responsible for implementing the content of the recommendation. They may, in full transparency, lift only progressively travel restrictions towards countries listed.”
However, according to sources at the Washington Post, it’s possible that vaccinated people could get a pass. A E.U. diplomat spoke to the paper on condition of anonymity. This person told a reporter restrictions “can vary from state to state, but it is widely expected that fully vaccinated Americans would still maintain unfettered access.”
Countries move on the EU’s travel restriction list when they report 75 new coronavirus cases per 100,000 residents over the past 14 days. On August 10th the U.S. had nearly 400 new cases per 100,000 people.
As a result, Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro, and the Republic of North Macedonia were also added to the list. Meanwhile, the Union recommended travel restrictions be eased across 18 other countries as their cases decreased. Even China made the list and has no similar recommendation to that of the United States.

FL bans puberty blockers, transgender surgery for minors
Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.
“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.
More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.
National Review reports:
The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.
The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.
Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
