My daughter has rheumatoid arthritis and is on methotrexate which affects her immune system. She was advised to shield, initially for 12 weeks then until at least 30 June. With 2 small children aged 1 and 7 and a husband who is a key worker in school this was not possible so she came to stay with me and her husband and children went to stay with his mum so she could look after the children while he was at work. It has been awful for her to be separated from the children for so long and I am very concerned about the long term effects on the children, especially the toddler who has changed so much during this time. The infection rate is very low in the area where we live. We have no idea what the shielding advice will be beyond 30 June. She is considering ignoring the risks to herself and moving the family back home together. Is anyone else in this position?
