Ayuso has said that children don't need to wear the masks at breaktime in schools. They still have to wear them inside. This actually goes along with current legislation where we are all required to wear masks inside, but not outside, doesn't it?Yes, I am quite worried about Ayuso's relaxation of masks in schools, I will try to make sure my kids still wear them, especially the younger one who is not vaccinated.
But in reality the danger of Ayuso's latest move is not that school kids get ill they will just become transmitters of the virus to parents and grandparents with whom they meet without masks and distancing, just like the UK. Madrid might end up like a little Britain!
I agree with you, but of all the ridiculous, damaging and wayward things that Ayuso has said this is not actually so far off the board. She has said they can take their masks off when they are outside and can keep a distance of 1.5 metres which is in line with current legislation.Masks are not obligatory outside except when social distancing can't be maintained. That's why it is still obligatory on railway station platforms for example. Many (me included) think that a school playground is one of the places where social distancing can't be maintained and therefore masks should still be obligatory.
That would be difficult for UK citizens with residency in Spain to get back in , would it not?UK citizens should not be allowed to enter the EU

When I was there in October the sensation of ignorance to risk was massive. I was staying in a hotel, nobody wore masks when in common spaces, even at the buffet breakfast people were wandering about amongst open food without masks, even coughing without coving their mouths.I agree with the rest of what you said, apart fom this bit. Why do you think the UK pretended covid had gone away? I think the UK accepted that covid is not going away, and we've got to learn to live with it. Hence it was tolerant of higher case counts and hospitalisations over summer, and is possibly now benefitting from more people having been infected and having natural immunity (herd immunity if you like?) Maybe the UK isn't in a good a place as Spain, but it seems to be in a better place than most of the EU right now.
