I have family in New Zealand and one of their youngsters arranged to come and stay with us for a week. He was due to leave today but a couple of days ago he went down with what seemed like a cold. He spent most of yesterday in bed and has now had a positive Covid test.
It's been a busy and frankly not terribly rewarding week. He just sits around on his phone all the time if we don't organise something to do. The weather's been pretty awful and he hasn't seemed to be interested in anything I or my DH have taken him to. I've asked him a few times what his plans are when he leaves us and there don't seem to be any, which is concerning.
My DH is still suffering from side effects of Covid earlier in the year and is very worried about contracting it again, so has asked that our visitor wear a mask when in the same room as either of us. We'll wear them too. Visitor has gone back to bed and hasn't roused when I've knocked.
Obviously we're not going to chuck him out when he's ill, but as his next stop is likely to be London, and as getting to London over the weekend (and finding somewhere to stay) is going to be complicated by the funeral on Monday, I think we're probably not going to be bidding him goodbye till Tuesday — which makes my heart sink.
