Im just wondering what the advice is regarding ‘self-isolation’ due to potential Coronavirus when you are the lone parent to a child, with very little support in the local area.
While i really don’t want to get hysterical about this, i do wonder whether asking friends to take my son to school if i am self-isolating is a good idea, especially as he is more than likely to get anything i have regardless of vigilant cleaning/hand washing (he is a boy who puts things in his mouth ALL the time)! I don’t want to put anyone else at risk..
I hope this isn’t something i need to contend with, however i would like to have a vague plan in place if the time should come.
Another single mum in the same position, however if I’m told to self-isolate my son would be staying in with me too, as the risk is he’d be a carrier and it would get taken into school – not fair on anyone, so the moment I’m told to self-isolate, it’ll be two weeks indoors with the 4 year old too!!!
I’ve actually bought a few fun kits and things to do already as I figured if we don’t have to self-isolate I’ll just use them for birthday/Christmas presents. Two weeks stuck indoors with a four year old will be a challenge…!
Unless you have other health issues/conditions and are very young or very old the likelihood that you’ll be hospitalised with Coronavirus is very small. Please don’t give yourselves more to worry about than you have already. Any 11 year old’s immune system should be pretty good unless compromised by existing health conditions. Try not to worry folks! <3
