Any idea what the rules are on this scenario?
My 22 month old granddaughter is living with her grandmother. The grand mother is single and under 70.
My wife and I are a married couple and my wife is over 70 with health issues such as C.O.P.D.
We want to help support our granddaughter by baby sitting her, taking her by car to nursery and having stay overnight with us maybe once per month.
I don't think we fit the bubble scenario as we are a married couple. Also my wife is over 70 as well. I found this information on this website;
Can I babysit my grandchildren?
Live on your own? Yes, if you are not shielding you are able to form a bubble with another household which could be that of your grandchildren. You will not be required to follow social distancing so practically this allows you to babysit them.
Live with a partner or other adult? No, although hopefully you won't have long to wait. From 4th July restrictions have eased to allow you to see them but you are still required to keep your distance.
Can anyone give me an answer to our dilemma?
