Moms, this question is probably for our doctor but please be patient with me. Last Friday, I, my husband, 14 month old, and nanny tested positive for Covid. Today, 5 days later, all of us except our nanny have tested negative. Our nanny doesn’t have any symptoms and she asked if she can come to work tomorrow. What would you do? Honestly, I am exhausted. I cant be home with our energetic toddler anymore, He has also turned into a stage 5 clinger. The kid refuses to go to my husband 😭
