I'm aware this probably isn't a AIBU issue but posting here for traffic mainly.

My daughters school is shut, she's classed as vulnerable as she has additional medical needs and asthma. She's 6.

Just for background. Myself and her father are divorced. He doesn't have her overnight. He sees her for 4 hours on a Saturday or Sunday and that's it. He has a new girlfriend (4 months) who has three school aged boys. She works in retail and both of them have been out and about as normal and socialising. They've recently returned from a weekend away in a big city. He hasn't seen our daughter for 3 weeks now.

I don't know what to do about him seeing her. He has kicked off saying I can't stop him. Although he hasn't seen her for three weeks is down to him prioritising other plans and not me stopping him.

I am not self isolating her, in that we are still going out but are avoiding busy places. We've been for a walk around our local park and as soon as get in we are washing hands and so on.

I feel a bit stuck and not sure what the right thing to do is. Any help, advice or those in similar situations would be appreciated.

Where do you do handovers and where does he normally see her?

He normally collects her from mine, takes her out (often to the pub) then brings her home.

I think you would be classed as needing to self isolate, which your ex can hardly contest. Have you seen the posters you can print out for your front door saying your in isolation due to vulnerable person?

I live in the country and yet one of my ndn's is in the local hospital having caught it in Italy on a family holiday. Suddenly everything is being closed.
