I just read an article stating international travel is restricted until July in Slovenia. My flight leaves from the US May 16, surely government officials understand a lot can change until then, especially as more travelers get vaccinated. There is always some risk of getting sick when traveling, just as there is risk of getting into an accident, being robbed, whatever, but we don't let that risk prevent us from living normal lives. I have read so many contradicting articles on this virus to know there is a lot we do not know. I do know the media likes to focus on pessimism, but there is certainly a lot of good news on the vaccination front. We are just now starting to make real progress in getting people vaccinated. From what I have read even if some vaccines such as the Johnson and Johnson vaccine are not as effective in stopping people from getting Covid 19, it is effective in keeping people out of hospitals and morgues. I would think by April we could see huge declines in the number of people going to hospitals and dying because of the virus. I have always thought the main reason for the restrictions was to keep hospitals from being overrun due to Covid.
Does anyone know if this policy is set in stone or subject to change? Common sense tells me it should be subject to change, but common sense often not used by government officials.
