    Ain't gonna be that safe ever, it never was. You got to make a decision on what way your life is going from here, hiding behind the couch or grabbing it by the kahonas.

    If your in the vunerable of hospitalizations group fix why your vunerable or if you can't tell her move in with some friends. This is with us now for good.

    Its years away from being like that.

    My missus and I were at a friends house for dinner the other night and we're all still alive. Have the friends over. They're adults, trust them to stay away if any of them dont feel well.

    You should only allow it if you are comfortable with it op, doesn't matter if people are feeling top of their game, they can still carry the virus and spread it. Just because restrictions have laxed a bit and vaccine is being rolled out doesn't mean people should become complacent. My view anyway some will agree some wont just how it is.

    According to the level 5 guidelines no visitors allowed.

    That said the only place that is at level 5 is the government press releases. Everywhere else is level 2 at best. So you're in a difficult spot.

    Personally, my view is that the views of anyone living in the home should be respected in relation to having Guests during a Pandemic.

    The current rules are no indoors household visits for social purposes unless in a support bubble. Or 2 fully vaccinated people from different households can meet indoors.

    If you don't feel comfortable having visitors to your home just yet, then your daughter should respect that.

    it will never be 100% safe, if you will feel better once someone on tv says its safe then you can hold of for another couple years, that said as another poster said its level 2 in most houses, people have friends all the time over, traveling between counties how they feel - as they dont listen to goverment garbage whats good or bad for them, since most people use common sense, just because goverment will relax restrictions come summer it wont be suddenly safe, even vaccines have % rates where person can still get sick, so nothing is guaranteed.


    that said you have free will and its your house, if your in the risk group or whatever you have a right to cocoon until next ice age its your choice and no one will drag you out.
