 Europe's borders are mostly open now, with some exceptions. People flying to the UK from certain countries such as Spain have to quarantine for 2 weeks, that's about it

 I saw him in Laax about 2 months ago outside the Trek store with Yolanda Neff, so don’t think he’s been back for a while.

 You can get out of this hell hole if you're willing to quarantine for two weeks.

 He may have a work visa to the EU which allowed him to travel over as it was getting bad/worse here.

 @Braindrain: It’s a dictated by the institutional narrative. Most severe lockdown measures in Europe. People questioned by police for thought crimes (Harry Miller). Highest percentage of CCTV cameras in the world. Mass Muslim rape gangs of teenage girls permitted due to fears of racism that threatens the multicultural agenda (a tenant of the institutional narrative). Institutional mass media propaganda leads to a fear-based populace, the most controlled and kowtowed in Western democracy.
