    Our nanny and cleaner never stopped coming. Our housecleaner wears gloves and mask. Maybe not the smartest move but I think we all had it back in February before we had testing available. Husband and I spent time in Seattle in late January/early February and I'm pretty sure we were exposed there.

    Our state never had a SIP order and they are talking about opening gyms, restaurants and elective procedures May 1. We haven't been too hard hit to date but obviously that could quickly change. We'll see. . .

    I was planning to book something this week when I came down with symptoms. Which made me rethink the wisdom of that plan.

    when my shoprite or amazon starts having all the cleaning supplies available again... then probably a month after that. Will of course supply her with a mask while she works too.

    My state has not lifted the shelter in place order. Not too many cases however. I was having my cleaning person come weekly. I now recognize that twice a month will be ok when the order lifts. My housekeeper's main job is a receptionist at a FP clinic so I will be cautious about her return.

    The cleaning lady still comes twice a month. She ( and we all) wear masks during her visits and practice social distancing.

    I am uncomfortable having childcare come to my home but it is a necessity if my wife is to keep her job. I would not bring back cleaners or anyone else.

    I have cut my interactions at work down to a minimum. I basically just sit in my office all day and when I do go out I decontaminate before going back in. I do a complete decontamination before going home.

    One of us going to the grocery store once a week and I wish we did not need to do that.

    This is long from over.

    I worry less about me or my family getting sick because we are young and healthy but I feel that if I slip up and give this to someone vulnerable it would be hard to live with. Since I have to interact with vulnerable people at work I will maintain strict precautions for now.

    Probably once the 15 minute home test kits are available. If I remember correctly, flattening the curve has a tail. Remains to be seen how long the tail is. Any guess?

    Our stay at home orders have extended to the end of May but the area is quite under control. So long as husband consents I'm comfortable having her return in May.

    I'll also return to biweekly massage. Apparently massage is deemed essential so she never stopped seeing clients.

    doing the sameas you-told them not to come but we continue to pay them as long as we both stay employed. I think it's way too soon to say. once the stay at home orders have been lifted presumeably because then we have widespread testing in place?

    Ours have already returned. But we're in a pretty low prevalence area and nobody is in the house when they're cleaning.

  • When is everyone bringing back their household cleaners?

    I’m just curious the consensus of when people plan on bringing back some of their household help (or maybe some people never got rid of them). We are busy professionals (although slightly less busy now) and stopped having the cleaners come at the onset of coronavirus (we did pay them one additional time to keep business afloat). With gradual improvements on the coronavirus front but no end in sight, I was curious when/if people are thinking of hiring some of the help back. Now, one month, six months, etc... They’d of course where gloves and masks and would be cleaning but obvious risks involved and there’s the component of trying to keep business afloat. For reference, I live in Northeast but not NYC.
Working...
