Israel has officially been removed from a list of nations deemed “epidemiologically safe” by the European Union, due to rising COVID-19 cases in the country.

The move means the European Council is now advising EU member states reimpose travel restrictions on Israelis, though the recommendation is non-binding.

The United States, Kosovo, Montenegro, and North Macedonia are also being scrubbed from the list.
