[Solved] Lock-down Being Ignored
I was dropping off on the doorstep presents for my granddaughter (who currently lives with her dad and 2 OAP grandparents) and then driving away when i saw my estranged wife's car across the road and she was inside.
This shocked e as she in a school teaching assistant and works to provide schooling for key worker kids thus at higher risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
It just so happens i had a call booked with the social worker and informed her of my concerns.
She couldn't care less.
My issue is that this isn't safe guarding y granddaughter, in fact its the complete opposite.
Unfortunately these things will happen and I feel as though it is out of our control. Frustrating I know...
My partners child lives with the mum and both mum and step dad are key workers in a school. Mum is currently off work so does not go into work but step father still going in on rotational basis to provide schooling for key worker kids and like you said, thus at higher risk of contracting/carrying Covid 19.
Mum tried to convince my partner to stop contact with his child as she is concerned of the childs safety.
When we raised the fact that child is living with a key worker and it would be safer for the child to be with us majority of the time and visit mum each weekend, mum strongly disagreed and stated it was actually a higher risk to transport the child in our private vehicle from mums house to ours and that living with her step dad - key worker - is not increasing the childs risk....
Mum has also refused my partner to collect his child prior to step dad coming home from work as she wants the child to be able to say bye to the step dad - which i feel only increases the risks.
This isnt so much lockdown being ignored but I guess it shows how people arent being sensible with visits/safeguarding etc!
