Our entire house has tested positive for COVID and the next two weeks are going to be interesting. Having all of the kids home and still working full-time is going to be a struggle.

Honestly I'd just take the sick leave if you have it. Even trying to alternating half days would make things much easier.

Might be worth reaching out to HR and your manager. They may be able to come up with a solution

Why is it that there is guilt for taking sick time when working from home? Even during COVID

Just finished two weeks of it with two kids and partner getting Covid. Very, very hard. One day at a time and have no expectations for anything.

Same thing happened to our house this weekend. It's like a preview of summer vacation but without being able to send the kids outside for eight hours a day.

Loved being outside for 8+ hours a day.

I don’t think it’s guilt - it’s why waste time off with being home? Better to use it for a real vacation or real block of time where you can enjoy yourself. If you are home, might as well…. (Assuming it’s not actual “sick time” but just the normal “PTO” most places have these days

I did it a few months ago. First my wife tested positive and isolated, so I had 2 small kids while trying to work. Then, my daughter got it. Then, I got it. Then, my son got it. It was not fun. I was able to work maybe about half the time.

Both of my parents were consultants and I grew up with them both working from home. As kids we learned how to be respectful.

I'm part of a fully vaccinated covet house and it's a bummer for everybody but not life-threatening for anybody

This was us last week too. Luckily everyone else in my house (except me) got over it quickly and they are all pretty much back to normal. Good luck! Hopefully I’ll be done with it soon too.
