I have been deliberating traveling to India for the past couple of months as I really miss my parents. This is the longest I have been without seeing them with no end of covid in sight. I’m just scared of traveling due to potential risk of catching Covid during flight. I’ll quarantine myself for 14 days away from them so that way I can avoid risking them. Not sure what to do...

Chances of you getting Covid on the flight are much less than catching something at the airport or in transit. Also, I’d suggest wait out a month or so since the cases and fatalities seem to be on an upswing.

Ladies- need advice. I’m 8 weeks pregnant and petrified of getting covid given the rising rates. I’m double dose vaccinated and my antibodies are sky high. But still worried. My husbands ex and their daughter (9yo) are not vaccinated. His ex is anti-vaxx. We get his daughter with us every other week and she’s out and about and in school and play dates. I know I can’t control that, but any suggestions on how to handle? I don’t want my hubs to not see his daughter. Thoughts?
