Hi all,
The ex husband has suggested taking our son (shared parenting/50/50) to Spain. I've looked at stats in the region they are travelling to and there's a decline but I still feel uneasy about sending him.
Can i please get some advice.

I have no idea as I haven't looked into it but my questions would be..
Has he thought about what would happen if one of them was unwell out there? Where would they stay if they had to quarantine For 14 days? What are the local hospitals like? Could they change flights if needs be (like if they had to quarantine for 14 days and couldn't make their own flights? Does any travel insurance cover COVID-19? What facilities would be open when they got there and what are the local guidelines re social distancing, cleaning..etc?

It's a no from me, everyone likes a holiday but not at all costs.

I would definitely want to say no, but how hard a no might depend on age. How old is your DS?

Travelling abroad won't be happening in my family this year fwiw.

There is Covid in the U.K. and there is Covid in Spain as long as he takes precautions there is no increased risk.
