May lose my grand dad to covid today. My mom is staying alone and all my aunts (Her sisters) are in the US. Everyone is suggesting that we bring her over so that she is not facing it alone. She has a US Visa until 2028. Does anyone know if the flights are getting disrupted? Is it possible to get her over asap?

Do it in the 2-3 days. United is in the process of cancelling, air India is still flying

Direct flights are still there between India and US I think, although it's likely only a matter of time. That said, hopefully she is vaccinated because going through an airport in india with the crazy outbreak without a vaccine is risky.

Flights are still operating. But get her ASAP.

United airlines cancelled flights until further notice

Does anyone know if we can fly her out through Doha? Bangalore doesn't seem to have the greatest connectivity and AFAIK, you can't even transit through Europe. Does the Europe exception apply to sisters? My aunts are all US citizens

Air India. Doha etc is fine too, but high chance of stuff getting canceled

Thanks all!

16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
