ALPSS 2020 plans

I would love to participate, even it meant doing this as a personal vacation.  The problem is, unless I am mistaken:  

1) the EU is not allowing any tourism from the USA (I understand only business travelers are accepted)
2) my company is not sponsoring any business travel to anywhere (they just announced they are not opening any US office until July of 2021)

Is there any chance #1 will change in the EU?

If so, I'll come!

Otherwise I'll assume this will be an EU only event, with perhaps some visitors from Asia.  But there won't be anyone from the USA attending...

Please advise.

    Dear ALPSS veterans,

    2020 is a special year and due to COVID-19 we won't be able to do a
    conference like in the past years. Never the less we consider
    organizing a small gathering at Lizumerhuette in Austria.
    So we'd like to ask who is interested in such a stripped down ALPSS variant?

    Please use the poll below to vote:

    The poll is anonymously, so using your real name is optional.

    If the amount of interested people is compatible with all COVID-19
    restrictions in Austria there is a chance to make ALPSS 2020 happen.

    Thank you on behalf of the program committee:

       Christoph Hellwig
       Johannes Thumshirn
       Richard Weinberger
