Q. First up, are you a lone parent?
Q. Have you had any problems in getting tested or self-isolating? Did you face any difficulties in doing them?
Thankfully we haven’t had any problems getting tested, we have access to broadband and a car. We’ve only had to do mini self-isolations whilst waiting for test results. They’ve been tough. Similar to the current lockdown, because when you have small children 24/7 you can’t meet anyone else anyway, I don’t want to take them into shops, and all the local outdoor spaces are always really busy. For us, the lockdown in general is hard because when you’re a family with small children (and a mum with health anxiety) it’s not much different from self-isolating.
