Support Bubbles - Does it Affect You?

Ask a Question

So boris has announced that in certain circumstances two households can be together but only if one of them lives alone, does affect you and how? Also do you agree with the slackening if the rules or should they be stricter?

If you are communicating with another family and vice versa, you both keep within your circle, cannot see an issue. Good idea.

Choose Wisely.

I think the rules should be reduced to help start a community moving again but it comes down peoples common sense and we all know a lot of the public are thick.

None of our family lives near us, so our bubble is my husbands best friend. They had a socially distant talk in the garden yesterday.

MrsCraig At present there is no need to socially distance from people in your "bubble" (they can even stay overnight) but unless your husband's best friend lives on his own he can NOT be part of your "bubble". Things will probably change later today (23rd June).

What your husband and friend actually did was within the "over complicated" regulations. (but nothing to do with "bubble")

davidstockport We live in Scotland, so the rules were slightly different here when we did this and are still slightly different here. Plus our son has a heart condition so our 'bubble'rules are very different. We can't have people to stay overnight. We can have someone in the garden socially distanced from us and that is it. Until his cardiologist says otherwise, we have to socially distance, so the regulations in the article don't apply to us.

MrsCraig I hadn't realised you were in Scotland and as this topic was about "Boris Rules" (For England) I assumed those were the rules or regulations you were commenting on.☺

davidstockport I missed the bit where it said Boris in the original post! I thought it was just about the UK in general! Should have read it more closely!

No, but I really miss out on community groups. We just moved here before Pandemic hit us and have no relatives or friends around.

I think we should test, test, test. Test even the healthy looking people, because we know they can also have the virus and after we need the track and trace system and if all of them are in place than we should socialize with others and than it could be all healthy households.

I miss the baby groups. My second children did not see many people since he was born because of pandemic.

My son didn't go out of the house or to any baby groups till he was 10 months old as he wasn't allowed to go anywhere except hospital, drs and cardiologist appointments due to infection risk. He took to them straight away when we did go, so I wouldnt worry about it impacting your child negatively.

MrsCraig It does has psychological and also sociological effect and it is proven by science. These effects will shown in adulthood...

AgnesFaludi Plenty of kids like mine cannot attend these groups and interact with other children when they're young because they have serious health problems. They turn out just fine.

Please consider how someone like me would feel with your remarks.

AgnesFaludi I disagree on these points. I lived in a very rural area with no transport therefore there was no baby/toddler/playgroup until both of mine went to nursery class prior to school. As for affects in adulthood - what would these be? There is nothing wrong with my kids, one a head chef in 4* country house hotel the other a Sister for the NHS currently in charge of COVID testing!

At present that only works for you IF you live alone - support bubbles, at present time, are only if one of the people in them lives alone. You can meet them (if you don't live on your own) with "distancing" but can-not stay overnight or enter house except for toilet facilities.
