Update: President-Elect Biden’s future press secretary Jen Psaki writes on Twitter that the incoming administration will cancel the lifting of these restrictions and will add additional limits on international travel:
On the advice of our medical team, the Administration does not intend to lift these restrictions on 1/26. In fact, we plan to strengthen public health measures around international travel in order to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Reuters is reporting that President Trump will lift restrictions on travel from Europe, UK, and Brazil to the US starting on 1/26.
That will coincide with the new requirement to provide a negative COVID-19 rapid or PCR test in order to board a plane to the US starting on 1/26.
Americans are still not allowed into the EU, though Americans can travel to Brazil with a negative COVID-19 PCR.
Of course on Wednesday we will have a new President and we’ll see a flurry of rule changes. Do you think that President-Elect Biden will allow these restrictions to be lifted?
