Greece also plans to reopen June or July, and Europe in general is hoping to reopen for summer season

Turks and Caicos Airport reopens June 1, with flights from JFK beginning June 2 and from Miami June 4. I'm not aware of any further restrictions upon arrival in the country.

If Norway/Europe won’t be open to everyone, you’ll have to charter a cutter to get there 😝

Wow. Will people be too scared to go, though?

I actually have a trip planned there mid-August. I am rebooking my tickets (only refundable) although I don't know if I will feel comfortable going. It all depends on what happens in the next few months.

Die Gesundheitsdirektion des Kantons Zürich hat am lahmgelegten Flughafen Zürich eine Art Virus-Detektei einrichten lassen. Hier spüren Biologen und Polizisten Menschen nach, die mit Corona-Kranken in Kontakt gekommen sind.
Hausärzte und Labors melden dem Büro Erkrankte und Kantonsangestellte versuchen dann herauszufinden, mit wem die Kranken zusammen waren (länger als 15 Minuten in weniger als zwei Meter Entfernung). Leute, die mit Kranken Kontakt hatten, werden in eine zehntägige Quarantäne geschickt – auch wenn sie keine Symptome zeigen.

Sie sind also offen, aber Sie haben die Chance, 10 Tage lang unter Quarantäne gestellt zu werden?

I believe this is for Swiss citizens. Foreign citizens are still banned from entering.

even when they will allow foreigners in:
A) Most probably all Kosher programs and hotels will not open this year.
B) tourist attractions will be very limited.

This is for Switzerland and Italy

Is it safe to stay at a hotel? Do they claim to disinfect the rooms?
