To take my daughter swimming
AvocadoYUK · 18/03/2020 09:45
Hello I was just wondering if I AIBU to take my daughter swimming.
Obviously lots of things are being cancelled and closed but it says Coronavirus has been proven not to to survive in chlorinated water and she has been going on about swimming for days (shes a toddler). We would only go into the small kid pool and when I rang up the swimming centre apparently there's barely anyone there

It is actually more necessary for me to swim than it is to go to work, but then you wouldn't know that, as you are too busy judging and don't know anything about my personal circumstances.
It might be more important for you that you swim than go to work, but on balance, I doubt very much that it is more important for the country at large that you continue to swim than that HCPs and other essential employees go to work. People have to go to work to keep the country going. People have to go to work to get an income to live on. Swimming may be hugely important for your personal wellbeing and if you feel the potential risk to others is worth is then carry on, but no matter how big a deal it is for you, in terms of where we are right now, it remains non essential social contact.
