1/ Q: When can we reunite the #grandparents and #grandchildren?

A: Efforts to protect grandparents, a higher risk group for #COVIDー19 complications, are really hard on everyone! As #ShelterInPlace orders lift, here are some things to consider when making plans to reunite:
2/ This is not personal. Balancing life-threatening risks to grandparents, while limiting the negative effects of
#IsolationLife, is no easy feat.
Adding germy, unpredictable small kids to this mix makes things even more complicated.
3/ Differences in opinions across generations can breed additional distress in an already stressful time. Stick to the facts. Listen to each other with #Respect.

Over 70s have been strongly urged to stay home as much as possible due to #coronavirus. But a lot of families rely on grandparents to help with childcare and that's proving a problem. #abc730 @P_McCutch #COVID19Aus
Wendy Lawson is a healthy 68yo but she is aware that fulltime care of her granddaughter Gabby puts her at higher risk of contracting #coronavirus. #abc730 #COVID19Aus #grandparents
“I don't have any underlying health problems. So, fingers crossed, it will stay that way. Yeah, but if the worst comes to the worst, and I do get ill then we'll have to make other arrangements for Gabby, obviously.” Wendy Lawson, grandparent and carer. #abc730 #COVID19Aus

Please can as many people as possible show your support to #AngelaRay and #JusticeForChildX. Last week the numbers were massive so hopefully it will be the same again this week #JusticeForAll #TuslaExposed
There are 2 Entrances into The Four Courts, you can use either & then make your way to the Main Hall where everyone normally meets before going into the Court.

When I was pregnant, I asked my #antivax parents to get the #whoopingcough #vaccine to protect their grandchild from it. They refused. We got in a big fight & there were lots of tears on both sides.
I told them that #whoopingcough can be deadly for infants & a person can be contagious with it before they show symptoms or know they have it.
I told them the CDC, AAP & my OBGYN recommended any caregiver in regular, close proximity to the baby should be #vaxxed against #whoopingcough. They also recommend the #flu shot, but I wasn't due in flu season and didn't want to have that fight too.
