I’m so torn between keeping my daughter in school because she’s six, she needs school! She needs friends! She needs to get out of the house! I need her out of the house! Set against the inevitability of her getting covid in the next few weeks given the higher transmissibility of the Omicron variant andContinue reading “The fifth wave”
