October 10. On September 20, the U.S. government announced that it would lift its travel ban, which had been in place in various forms since March 2020, to fully vaccinated EU and U.K. travelers (amongst others) in November 2021.
There have been reports in The Telegraph, that the U.K. government has become increasingly impatient with the Biden Administration because it has not named a precise date for reopening. There are suggestions that there would be a delay on the November date because the issue is reasonably complicated, as sign off needs to come from all the government areas involved–The White House, Department of Transport, State Department and National Institute of Health.
The U.S. has still to announce whether it will allow unvaccinated children to visit with vaccinated parents/guardians, or which vaccines it might accept. It also needs to develop contact-tracing rules for incoming international passengers before scrapping the travel ban. There also appears to be potential disagreements, as reported by The Telegraph, on testing requirements amongst the different U.S. states.
There are currently no nationwide travel restrictions or mask mandates in place but several states have introduced travel restrictions and mask-wearing policies.
