I need sanity check please. i am 6m pregnant with twins, have a history of miscarriages&specialists urged us to be extremely careful since covid19 can lead to stillbirth. My SO is staying with his parents this week to help with renovation. We agreed they'd follow social distancing rules while SO is living there, but he just told me his parents are spending hours with their friends in closed spaces wearing no masks!Now he has to stay 5 days longer and test prior to coming home. Right to be angry?
