Hi all, was hoping for a little input from others in possibly similar situations, as so many of us are unsure about how this is all going to work with the wider opening... So, the manager of a nursery I work at has informed us all that the government advises that children do *not* transmit the virus to other children or to staff. Therefore we do not need to worry, basically, when we're in work about our proximities with the children, and no PPE is to be worn (even for one member of staff who has been recommended she do so by her healthcare professional). I cannot find this anywhere in the government advice to early years settings, and questioned it, as I know there are many studies showing that children can transmit the virus to others even if they don't present symptoms or have very mild cases, the transmission rate is still there. I've since been quite strongly reprimanded and admonished by the manager for "creating panic" and was made to delete my (very mild and politely questioning!) comments asking about where in the advice it says so. Now - I don't really know where to go from here, because I don't want the staff there thinking they are not risking the health of themselves and their family members by believing that only the staff there have the chance of transmitting the virus to them. They are implementing 'bubbles' and are carrying out more cleaning than they would normally and limiting resources etc, but, it's worrying to me that they're being sold a potential falsehood on how at risk they are. It's absolutely great if they are still willing to of course, but I know many of them do have family members they might wish to still shield... If they knew the full story? Am I bang out of line here? I'm so lost on what the "right thing" is... My conversation with the manager made me feel like a complete conspiracy nut for questioning the gov advice (though it doesn't even look like it *IS* the gov advice - again making me feel a little unhinged !!) It's not a question of my own health, I know I can make my own decision about returning to work or not, it's that it's not allowed to be discussed as a group that worries me I think. Please help, any and all inputs would be greatly appreciated, just been feeling very stuck in my own little world (& my own little mind) about it all!
