Nah not right now, RSV and parainfluenza are rampant. I’d probably visit with them, preferably outdoors, but let them stay full-time with less vulnerable family.

Unless they’ll be helpful to you, no. It’s a hard and stressful time already so they should understand. Put you and baby’s health and comfort first!

Thanks everyone for the advice! We offered to pay for their hotel stay instead and we’ll be seeing them for a hour or two.

Hard pass. Aren't you exhausted dealing with a newborn? Its one thing to have folks over because they are gonna be around for help, but hosting someone, anyone at this point, when its more work or stress on you sounds too much.

Yes, but that’s the relationship I have with certain family members (e.g., my Mom and sister + her family). Not all family is treated equal!!

No, not during a pandemic or even otherwise. Newborns are exhausting

Wholly depends on the relationship you have with them. I have some family memento you can't pay me to let stay in my house (with or without a newborn). While others know they are welcome

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
