    Hi @Ashvinney

    I am so sorry to hear you are in this situation. It is really worrying, especially for those of us who are particularly vulnerable. All I can say is I hope you will be okay! Have you got people who can go out for you if you find it easier to stay indoors? :)

    I just wanted to add my well wishes too, @Ashvinney. I can appreciate it'd be very stressful being in that situation. I had coronavirus recently, and am definitely now more paranoid about catching it again. 

    Do you have an action plan in place for if you were to catch it? Fingers crossed you'll dodge it, but there's no harm in being prepared. For example, how you'd get food and medication in etc.

    @Ashvinney your carers should be doing tests any way and should be wearing a mask whilst your in the room or if they don't then you can ask them to

    Thanks @lisathomas50 for your continued support within our community. You are right, they should be doing these things unless they are exempt from wearing masks!  :)
