Do I need to self isolate from my family if they're self isolating with me?
I started chemo 2 weeks ago and although I've not received a letter from the government, have taken the decision to self-isolate for 12 weeks. I've been keeping distance from my husband and kids for 10 days and am hoping that by the end of this week I might be able to be a bit physically closer to them, whilst obviously taking usual precautions around hands/ food prep and sharing/ bathrooms etc.
As they've stayed away from anyone else for 2 weeks, will I be able to have occasional physical contact with them - a big now and then, once the 2 weeks is up or do I need to avoid this for the full course of my chemo?
Looking ahead, when the kids return to school and my husband returns to work, am I then going to have to be even more strict over self isolation (literally not being in a room with them at all)?
