The agreement with the EU is supposed to be reciprocal, so I'm surprised that apparently it's not an exact mirror image. 

As I understand the position EU folk can visit the UK for 180 days in any 365 day period.  Not 90 in any 180 as it is the other way around. 

The former would be better surely?

Kavanagh - you misquote me, I did not suggest I was the EOS expert on Covid matters, nor would I make such an absurd suggestion.

This thread is not "closed" it was opened to discuss the surprising allowance of the flexibility in the travel restrictions negotiated by Stanley Johnson, so keeping your comments on this topic would be very much appreciated.

Thank you so much kiss

Kavanagh, I don't need to be a motor mechanic to drive a car, or a IT geek to use a computer, so why should I need to be a "COVID-19 scientist" to follow the Government's guidance on travel restrictions? 

I watched the televised Covid 19 debate in parliament yesterday. It was a bit mundane and Stanley Johnson's amendment was hardly mentioned and the house accepted the government's proposals without amendment by a massive majority.  In fact those who voted against were clearly of the opinion that we should be relaxing the rules a lot sooner.

Stanley Johnson has written a good article in the Telegraph today - you may wish to read it and perhaps let him have the benefit of your thoughts.  

But I'm more interested in hearing the findings from the Global Travel Taskforce which are now scheduled to be made known on 5th April - a week earlier than previously indicated.  That may well be crucial for a far greater number of people.

Getting this right is so important, the cost is secondary - most important is your health.

We tend to follow a combination of Windtaker's and Baz1946 advise -  sometimes in the summer with a half an hour blast of cool air just before retiring.  Personally I would never leave the A/C on all night other than just on a mild tick over setting when desperate.

Don't waste time and money on those devices where you put ice in a blower that supposedly circulates cool air all night, they don't do much except circulate the air - a ceiling fan does this better.

There are a new breed of A/C units on the market in Spain now - they look far less ugly that the retrofit units and claimed to be more efficient than the "hanging out the wall" variety.

It was raised as a talking point, despite the expectation of a comment from you.

But in reality the likelihood currently is that any Brit travelling to Spain this summer will have had both jabs and still be required to have at least one negative test.  If it were me I would also voluntarily put myself into 14 day isolation, as I've done twice already. 

The local supermarket has an excellent delivery service, so the risk I create is miniscule - so please no patronising advice.

PS Currently there are considerably less restrictions of travel around the EU by the rest of Europe - all of whom have had far fewer inoculations.  It's those guys who present a far greater hazard.
