Does anyone currently have parents in the US, visiting from India? I am debating if it’s safer for them to travel back home now before Coronavirus gets worse here in the US.

Same question. I have my mom here with and she is scheduled to go back March 26. When are your parents scheduled to go back

Yes, my parents are here and I am sending them back next week

They will go through thermal screening at the airport and will be quarantined only if they detect anything. Till now, US is not under mandatory quarantine but that may change any day :(

Hi All - Parents are visiting me from India next week. I'm considering buying the INF BMI Ultra for my dad who is over 70 years. But has anyone taken their parents to CVS to get them tested for Covid? And booster or Covid vaccines? How did it work out from an insurance standpoint? How much paid out of pocket? Any info, please share, much appreciated.

I just found out that the person I was with last year is with someone new. We were separated because of distance/covid. It just makes me sad because I feel that covid took away the opportunity for us to be together and further develop the connection that we had. It was unique and hard to find. So much has changed. I’ll get over it and if we aren’t going to be together then I am sure it’s for the best. Just feeling this heaviness today.
