Countries should open borders to certain states in US that have coronavirus under control to help revitalize consumer travel and spending. Thoughts?

How would they govern it? Too easy to move across state lines. It’s not like we would be able to implement different protocols for incoming German travelers from Bavaria vs Saxony.

Also, have you been through airport immigration lines at a busy airport? There’s rarely enough room in the non-Schengen Zone lines as it is. Even if you could split people by state at document control, they were already all mingled in the line (and plane) anyways, defeating the point.

No. I wouldn’t let Americans in at the moment. A lot of countries did the right thing and shouldn’t be potentially hindered by foreigners going on vacation from a country who didn’t.

There's states that have it under control?

NYC just reported their first 0-death day. The slight downward trend (before the spike) was primarily because of NYC getting their explosion under control.

It'd be hard to enforce. It's not like everyone is in the state that they're from (in terms of ID) and what's to prevent people from crossing state borders? The closest thing they can do is to not accept flights from specific airports.

I hope European borders are closed until the virus is under control in the US. No point in opening up except for essential travel. Nobody wants to turn Europe into Florida or Texas.

Also some of my friends in Europe are not allowed to travel to the US until the end of the year for now...if they go, they are not allowed to come to the office for 14 days at least.

Other countries would never go for this. There’s a pretty big stigma/fear of US travelers abroad right now.

I’m an expat in NYC. I don’t want anyone from any other state coming here...so why would anyone from any other country want any US visitors? That being said, I wish I could go see my parents.

I feel you with the wanting to see you parents. I’m in the same boat and it’s mentally draining.

Wish I could go home, but I’d rather not have Americans from any state coming to my home country either.

That’s not hard to enforce, it’s functionally impossible to enforce. And I think unconstitutional; no state has the power to make the immigration law necessary to enforce it anyway.

That’s not how international affairs work, sorry

We allowed our politicians to make this bed. We have to sleep in it.
