I don’t think it’s about safe versus not safe. There’s a balancing act between safety and the economy. The difference is that people can choose whether or not to go on holiday. If they’re vulnerable, they don’t have to go. Schools staff can’t choose whether or not to be in school.
So there is pressure on the government to drop the quarantine restrictions for travel to EU countries so that people can have their summer holidays abroad. Yet they are also saying that schools and colleges will possibly not fully return in September and it may even be into 2021 before they can fully return. AIBU to think that if it is deemed safe to travel abroad on holidays that it is safe for schools to fully return?
