UGGGH, Cate starts daycare on Monday. We have confirmed cases where I live. One is confirmed in my county. Cate is starting daycare on Monday. I have been obsessive in handwashing and using sanitizer since she was born. I don't let anyone touch her that hasn't washed their hands. I even have a little sign on her carseat that says please don't touch my hands without washing yours. It makes people really stop and think. I have done a good job keeping her little world sanitized so far, but will lose control of that when she starts daycare. They have good sanitation techniques there. All kids when they come in wash their hands with soap before they do anything. But still. Plus, the daycare is an intergenerational daycare because it is located in the county nursing home and is run by the county. It is the best daycare in the area. The other decent daycare is run by the hospital. Yeah so she can either get something from the old people (cause they interact with the old people there. They read to them and come play with them or do crafts with them. Some rock the babies) or she could catch something from the daycare that has hospital workers. Not that she couldn't catch something at her current daycare because most of the doctor/NP moms that work at the hospital send their kids to the daycare at the nursing home Sara and Cate attend (cause it is the best in academics and stuff). I am worried because she has respiratory issues (probably because of genetics and because she was early). We already use a nebulizer. So I worry about her getting this now.
Am I alone in this worry?
