Is neighbour putting me at risk

(58 Posts)
Shxx Tue 27-Oct-20 05:01:57

I live in a converted house, one flat below and above.
Don't get on with either of them, they both bullied me to hell so there is no talking.

Anyway, tenant above on two occasions has gone down to the two tenants below and gone into their flat then back up to our communal area.

The flat below has their own front door and tenant above shares a front door with me.

I'm high risk due to being a NHS volunteer, as a support worker for a disabled man and I'm pregnant.

I have on video due to cctv outside my home the tenants doing this.

I live in London so we are tier 2.
Are their laws being broken? I'm obviously upset due to I feel there could be a risk of me and my partner.

Why are you high risk because you volunteer? Give up the volunteering while you're pregnant if you feel it's dangerous? I'd find it hard to give a fuck what my neighbours got up to. You're not in this man's company, I presume you keep your distance. Just do the usual handwashing and maybe spray any stair bannisters or surfaces with anti-bac if you're particularly worried.

Was this after entering tier 2 on midnight 24 Oct? And are you sure they are not a support bubble for each other?

And yes, I think that you can't visit other peoples' homes, so they are breaking the rules (not sure whether it's legislation yet).

In what way are you at risk by this? confused
You could be putting your neighbour at risk by going into the disabled man's house you support and then coming back to your shared communal area ever thought about that? Does your partner not leave the house at all? Does he go into anyone else's home for any reason whether it's to work or provide support to someone?
Ever thought that maybe it's possible the neighbours are support bubbles for each other?

hmm concentrate on yourself, not others.

I don't believe you are being put at risk by this really, as you are not spending time with any of them. Treat the door handles in the communal areas as you would in public spaces - so sanitise or wash hands. Otherwise I think you are ok. Even if they get it, you are in your own flat.

Sorry you have unpleasant neighbours flowers

Youre at far more risk doing your volunteer work (or going to a supermarket) I cant see how your neighbours are putting you at risk at all.

OliveTree75 Tue 27-Oct-20 06:22:03

I agree with PP. You are just as much putting them at risk by volunteering in another home and then into communal areas.

If you're so worried about risk due to being pregnant, then stop volunteering.

This just reads like you're trying to find fault with your neighbours because you don't like them.

To be honest this looks as if your trying to cause issues with the neighbours.

If you don’t go near the neighbours then their acts are putting you no more at risk than anyone you may very briefly come into contact with in the wider world.

Unfortunately the nature of viral infections means what other people do affects you.

ApolloandDaphne Tue 27-Oct-20 06:44:48

I think the short answer is- no, they are not putting you at risk. You are not in their home or spending any time with them. You are already going into a high risk environment. You probably pose as much of a risk to them as they might do to you.

Another day, another poster itching to use coronavirus laws to get back at someone they dislike.

The expression don't shit where you sleep comes to mind here, given your history, if they get in any sort of trouble it's likely they will assume you reported them.

Frdd Tue 27-Oct-20 07:16:20

If you’re that worried why haven’t you stopped volunteering?

Hugosmugo Tue 27-Oct-20 07:21:33

They could be in a support bubble. You don't like them, which is fine, but that is clouding it. I could not get worked up about 2 people living in the same (converterted) house spending some time together. It is a lonely time for many.

Is your neigbour licking your door handle or coughing through your letterbox?

Morgan12 Tue 27-Oct-20 07:26:02

No

lentilsforlunch Tue 27-Oct-20 07:27:49

Wow people are being aggressive!
I think you mean that you don't want to catch it because a you're pregnant and b are visiting a vulnerable man.

If they are breaking the rules what can you do anyway? What's the actual risk in the shared spaces? Just the door handle or are you worried about the air? Just try to think it through and plan accordingly. Are you a bit anxious in general currently?

LadyPenelope68 Tue 27-Oct-20 07:27:51

How are they putting you at risk? Plus, you are not a high risk category just because you’re an NHS Volunteer, you’re not frontline FFS

Grobagsforever Tue 27-Oct-20 07:29:12

Oh god another aspiring Stasi post

AriettyHomily Tue 27-Oct-20 07:31:27

How are they putting you at risk? Ffs.

Bluntness100 Tue 27-Oct-20 07:32:22

How exactly does this put you at risk?

If you just don’t like them and want to find a way to have a go, fair enough, but this is silliness. Find a better reason.

You are looking to pick a fight. Are you sure it is them that is the problem here, because it sounds more like you might be it.

LIZS Tue 27-Oct-20 07:36:27

Sounds as if you barely see them anyway. Just stick to guidance in the communal area as you do outside.
