So obviously I’m sure you’re all aware of the news for lockdown in the UK.
Now as I am a key worker I still have to go to work during this time where I will be working in a building that have approx 800 staff across all shifts.
Now while I don’t want to stop seeing my kids (I have them Tuesday and on weekends) I also don’t want to be putting them at risk. 1 has asthma and 1 has a genetic condition which can effect a whole number of things within the body.
What should I do? What do I have to do? I don’t want them at risk by being with me as I have a higher chance of catching it due to work than their mother does who doesn’t work. Am I going to have to stick to video calls for the 3 weeks outlined?
I messaged her last night before going to bed saying that we needed to have a talk regarding the kids and what we are going to do and the text I got this morning was basically saying no. She doesn’t want to change because we’ve already seen each other so what’s the difference if we keep seeing each other and she still needs to do shopping! (She also has an 19yo daughter living at the home who would have no issue in minding the kids for hour while she goes shop, literally around the corner) I replied back my concerns from still being in work with so many different people and catching it at a later date and then passing it on but will have to wait to see what she says.
Any advice during this time is greatly appreciated.
