I’ve been asked for advice and I really don’t know what to say. My DD is a single parent, her ex has nothing to do with her or his daughter. He has even banned his mother from contacting her.. My GD is 14 and 10 days ago a girl in her year group but not her class tested positive for corona. Consequently 90 pupils were sent home. My GDs class were not furloughed, but my DD kept her at home for a week. Now she has had emails from the school stating if she is not back at school tomorrow she is breaking the law and there will be consequences. My DDs concern is that if she gets the virus there is no one to look after her or her daughter especially if she is hospitalised. Also she was made redundant in May and has since set up her own business so catching the virus would be a disaster. My DGD has also had severe emotional problems stemming from a vitriolic divorce and her fathers total indifference, to the extent that her doctor and Cams are involved. The school are aware of this.
I don’t know what to say and I’m really worried about the situation. I would welcome any suggestions, there must be thousands of families facing similar situations.
