Protect vulnerable people with small children

I think it is important to remember that not all people vulnerable to the disease are older. I have a 3 year old and a 7 year old and have been advised that even if schools/nurseries reopen I should not allow them to attend because the risk of them bringing the infection home to the house is high.

I'm really worried about my children becoming isolated because of my health condition or me having to live separately from them in order to allow them to return to school.

Could we develop a more sophisticated version of home schooling for the children of the vulnerable when schools return, where they can join the real classroom through things like zoom?

Why the contribution is important

I really worry about the division of society into the vulnerable and those with no health conditions. This would help alleviate this factor for my children.

    I think a team of education professionals developing this centrally would he good. Will be too hard if schools return to expect teachers to teach in person and remote learning. However, I agree that it would be good to have robust online learning if we are encouraging those than can and need to, to stay in.

    Good idea, allowing children to be part of the classroom experience while isolating from home.
