Notes: You MUST meet the requirements of your destination country, they checked all of that in the US. You MUST have a negative Covid test valid 72 hours prior to departure. Depending on Covid testing ...

The question is not whether they will notice it, but if they care. The main criteria for the entry of 3rd country citizens is where they reside (not specified by the OP) and if that country is on the very short list of countries listed at the Restrictions on travel to the EU page. So other than the possibility that you may possibly help in spreading a virus ...
