Since the start of Covid I have been visiting my parents and my husbands parents. All of them are quarantining enough that I’m not afraid to go there.
Me and my husband were absolutely planning on going to both families for thanksgiving because I’ve been having regular dinner with all of them all year long. No extra people are coming.
But now my MIL says the tenant upstairs has Covid. I don’t know how long she’s had it but she told them today she’s positive.
The tenant has a separate entrance/front door but I believe they share a mailbox with my in laws. I also know they use the same fence door as my in laws to get in and out of the property.
The tenant doesn’t work and my in laws don’t work so it’s not like they’re both touching the fence multiple times a day but I imagine they both check the mailbox daily.
I don’t think I want to go to my in laws for thanksgiving after hearing this news. But my husband is insistent that he is going. His parent still want us to come. So even if I don’t go to thanksgiving at my in laws I could possibly still get it.
IF my in laws have it and my husband goes over and get it, it’s totally possible I could get it from him in our own home after thanksgiving…
If that’s the case should I just go to my in laws for thanksgiving anyway since everyone’s acting (my husband and his parents) like they’re gonna be all disappointed if I don’t go?
I have told my in laws to get tested but they’re old, disabled, immune compromised, etc. so I don’t know if they’re gonna go, even if the test is free, and I can’t force them.
What would you do?
