I’ve got to self isolate before going into hospital (completely symptom free) but my daughter doesn’t need to self isolate and so will continue going to school. How can I self-isolate and still get her to school? I should point out that I’m a widow so can’t ask her Dad to have her for the 4 days before I go in and the school count it as an unauthorised absence if I keep her home for those days… All the information I’ve found it aimed at parents who have split up not widows/widowers.
I would self isolate , but still take your daughter to school and come straight home every time. Your daughter needs to go to school , you could see if another parent could take her but it wont make much difference if you do it or they do it.
I think perhaps I wasn’t clear in my original post… I get that she needs to go to school but the whole point of self isolating is to make sure I don’t come into contact with anyone who could have covid and if my daughter is going out and coming back she could bring the virus with her. The hospital advice is to social distance within your home but I can’t exactly social distance from a 7 year old within the confines of our house for 4 days so I’m wondering if anyone else has had the same situation.

We had a similar story, I got up an hour earlier, prepared everything for the children, and my father gathered them. Of course, the antiseptic treatment. So I spent a week, but my children did not get sick. I also wore a mask, used the bathroom only with antiseptic, cooked for myself separately.
