The same people complaining about having to do 14 day quarantine from Spain also complaining about schools maybe not going back full-time. Itโ€™s all connected...the lower the prevalence of the virus is, the more normality can happen.

Several populist leaders have tried to win over the public by telling them they can have it all & using false promises. Unfortunately in a pandemic, tough choices have to be made & real trade-offs. Real leaders explain those hard choices & hard truths to bring public with them.

Many people were over keen to embrace a veneer of normality, not least at the UK Government's behest. Their zealous pursuit of 'normal' does not serve long term goals well.

So true. I know few people who have gone abroad, but those who have are precisely those who will be complaining about kids not being in school in autumn in a second wave. There is a strange sense of entitlement going on...

I'm not going abroad but schools have to open in Sept. It's not about entitlement it's about social & economic justice. Damage to children's education & wellbeing & to working mothers has already been huge. No more. Yes we'll need preventative measures but they must reopen to all

Hi Devi, please see excellent thread explaining why safest option for schools opening is low community transmission. I feel this supports your position that zero covid is best for whole of UK, for all settings.

Excellent thread and should be 'bookmarked.' Too many people peddling the myth that it is absolutely safe for children to return.

What about the teachers who will now have to quarantine in return? Schools going to be fully staffed?

Doubtful even without quarantine. I can't see every staff member who is shielding until the end of the month being happy to come back to schools so quickly. I'd think there would be quite a few fit notes going in. I'm not sure that all supply teachers will be available either.
