Good morning.Yes I know been away for a few days. Not ill had to take some time off for families and here at home. my daughter is coming up for a few days for a visit. One problem is that she lives in GA.and they have one of the highest rate of the virus.I ask her to think about this, but she said that she does not live in fear. she does want to come home to visit her mother not really well. She will be here next month.Both of us getting along in age not sure how long will be hanging on in life.

It's not at all a good idea, I agree with @myklj999, insist that she get tested before visiting. It's also to respect her mother who is not well... fine that she does not live in fear, but it's not a good reason to contaminate the others.

I can understand that she isn't living in fear, but it doesn't take fear to have compassion and understanding for others. I think that she should consider the health of her parents too. If she comes to see you I would wear a face mask and ask for no hugs. It's sad that these are the ways we have to deal with things, but it's necesary.

NO it is not fine Raj. It may be ok for younger people but for the elderly and those who are immunosuppressed it could be fatal. Numbers of people dying in India are on the increase every day 27,000 new cases alone yesterday and 521 deaths.

She should wait some time before entering your home...... It is very risky for you to catch the virus, not for her.

That is a hard question. I would request that she get tested and even then visit outside, and stay physically distanced.

I don't know what the situation is going to be next month, but as they are possibly going on look down again she should be really careful. You don't want her to bring anything with her you don't want.

I would be worried if she wasn’t tested first. She may not live in fear, but it’s not fair to visit her mother who is not well.

As a health care professional I would suggest she be tested before visiting for sure. She also needs to consider the possible consequences of her visit and you need to openly discuss this with her. This is a tough situation since her mother is so ill -so does the risk outweigh being able to see her mother one last time? There needs to be an open, honest discussion between all 3 of you before the decision for her to visit is made.

Place the chairs or sofa in your living room so that you always keep a distance of 1.5 meters from each other. Wear a face mask and ensure adequate ventilation, so windows open. Ask her if she takes temperature beforehand and does not come with a flu. Wash your hands with soap regularly after personal contact. Furthermore, use your mind and then it should go well. I hope you all have a enjoyable time and have fun.
