Just wondering how this is going to be physically possible for many - particularly families where both parents work and single parents.

Will you be able to go back to work if schools don't reopen?

I don't know what I'd do. Single parent. DS is older but has ADHD and can't be left every day from 7am-6pm.

Nope I can’t. 2 & 3 year old. Single parent. No grandparents. Rely solely on nursery and holiday clubs. Worried sick.

I will, single parent but my ex doesn't work and is local.
He will have to have ds if work opens before schools, im hoping it will be the other way round.
Im in hospitality so no idea which will be first at this point, im pretty sure the govenment or my company are not going to pay me to sit at home until September.

No. Usually my parents and MIL do holiday childcare and they are all over 70.
DH can do a Little bit alongside WFH but I’m going to put work on the back burner for a while.
