Hi! How do you all feel about work travel and this new delta strain? I am vaccinated but my kids are obviously not. So becoming a little hesitant about continued travel and potentially breakthrough infection passing to my kids. Are your companies addressing this?

My company is saying we can ask for exceptions to travel, events, etc on an as needed basis. Think this is awful as most managers are white males with stay at home wives and this will negatively impact primarily women in career progression.

My leadership team is meeting in Chicago today. I live there but declined to go in office for this reason. I believe one of the partners also decided not to come in for this reason as well. My company has made it pretty ad hoc/at the discretion of the partner and "business need". My particular team had no issue with this. Just know you are not alone in taking care!

Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?

I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd
