So as I write this, I have 3 poorly children. They all have coughs so you can imagine what my first thought was!
As soon as anyone develops a cough or starts to feel ill. It is action stations. Lateral Flows and PCR tests at the ready!
But with a cough comes time off school and isolation.
I find it all so confusing. No school until a negative test but I still can’t send Elsa with a horrible cough. I added her negative test to the NHS Covid app and it said if she has symptoms then she still have to isolate.
So what do we do?
Carry on or stay in isolation until the kids are better?!
It is so hard to keep up with what we are all meant to be doing at the moment. A cough doesn’t just mean Covid. It could so easily be something else but we have to act like it is Covid. Life stops. More time out of school or work.
I’m going to speak to the GP tomorrow and see what they say as Elsa, Cleo and Brody all have exactly the same symptoms!
If you have any queries then speak to your GP or 119 as it is better to be safe.
I’m so fed up of Coronavirus now, I think everyone is! Bring on a life with a little bit of normality!
