Should I cancel my child’s birthday party?
I can’t answer that question for you. All I can say is what I would do, is I would cancel birthday parties, wedding parties, hens’ parties, because you’re just coming in contact with other people. So it’s not just the kids, it’s the parents and the grandparents and others. When people gather, you’re increasing the risk of transmitting the infection. At the moment, and I’m recording this in mid-March, the risk is low, but if you’re watching this in mid-April or mid-May, the risk might be much higher.
