Immunosuppressed - theatre & meal at wknd yes or no?

I am meant to be going with my mum & sister on Saturday to see a show and then out for a meal.
I am immunosuppressed due to medication I take for RA.

As there is no specific advice in place for this group I am unsure whether to still go or not. I am getting more anxious by the day but also kind of think life has to go on as much as possible.

My mum & sister would prob be annoyed if I don't go but they don't have the same issues. My
mum is old school and would think I'm just being dramatic but seeing as I have a young family I'd like to be cautious with regards my situation.

What do people think - go or not go? Mind you who knows where the country will be by then anyway it's still 4 days away!

I wouldn't go, I'm social-distancing as far as I can.

I cancelled a social gathering in a pub tonight. Just playing it safe really.


Mamato2gorgeousboys · 11/03/2020 20:06

I also wouldn’t go.


GalOopNorth · 11/03/2020 20:07

I am immune suppressed and I definitely would not go.


MoltonSilver · 11/03/2020 20:07

I wouldn't go either.

No. That’s the advice of medical professionals right now. Listen to them.


CatherineOfAragonsPomegranate · 11/03/2020 20:45

Is it the official advice Millie101? I didn't realise.

Maybe I'm wrong, then. But I earn a living from dealing with over a thousand people every day and nobody's suggesting that I stay at home because I'm high risk.

I suppose if I didn't have to work, I'd give a trip out a miss - especially if it meant hours in the company of people who don't/won't understand how shit autoimmune conditions are.

My rheum consultant has told me to avoid large groups which sucks as I wanted to go and see a film. However I do have bad asthma as well

When I first became immunosuppressed I was told to avoid crowds and ill people, so I would do this even more so in this situation since this thing is so contagious.
