The corona plague has caused severe disruptions to education systems around the world, with students having to spend much of the last two years learning from home.
However, many Western countries avoid mass isolation of students in case one of them is infected with the virus, and instead focus on testing to allow for further study.
Maya, a four-year-old mother who lives in Miami, testified that with them everything goes on as usual, "there is no isolation madness."
She said that after a child in her kindergarten her son contracted corona, "the principal called to update, everything remained as usual, except if he noticed symptoms such as cough or fever. Only in that case should he stay home for five days," she said.

In Catalonia, Spain, vaccinated children are not required to be isolated, and those who are not vaccinated do an antigen test at a pharmacy, and go into isolation for seven days, said Lilach, a mother of three, a resident of Barcelona. "Isolated children study zoom, the teacher just teaches the class at the same time with an open screen," she explained, adding that she and her family fell ill during the Christmas break. "We were pretty disappointed to cancel all the plans, we were at home for about two weeks until we all recovered completely, although in terms of isolation days we could have left after just a week. The difference is that there is no testing madness here," Lilach concluded. "There is no atmosphere of hysteria here at all."
According to the guidelines in Barcelona, when found to be verified to Corona in the classroom, vaccinated or recovering students should undergo a test, and are not required to enter isolation. Students who are not vaccinated or recovering go into a week of isolation. "Things are pretty clear to everyone," Lilach added. "A child who can not go to school is left to zoom in from home,Tested once if exposed to the case. There is no need to be tested every moment. "
