Would you judge?

Would you judge a non resident parent who had t seen their son for 3 months in these circumstances?
Son has been off school and lives with extended family, one of whom is shielding.
NRP at first was still working in a customer facing job so understandably couldn’t visit. NRP then got furloughed but is due to go back to work in a week or two.
In my mind, if that was my child, whilst not working, I’d have isolated for 2 weeks, then walked, however long it took, so I could go and play with my child in the garden.
When I suggested that the time off work could of been used to visit, the reply was that they’d still been seeing people occasionally and been out and about so it wasn’t safe.
Not my child, but a family member which is why I care.

NRP are entitled to see their children

If however the NRP has pushed some boundaries and the child or the other family have vulnerabilities then there could be justification for refusing

No the resident parent hasn’t refused as such. They both kind of agreed the nrp couldn’t visit due to vulnerability in the household.
But surely if you really wanted to see your child, you’d isolate for 2 weeks to make that possible. Then meet in the garden.
