Hello PT,
I am over 50 and have an amazing boyfriend. His son just arrived from college today and more than obvious he is spending the weekend with his son in the new home he built. He invited me but I told him this is a great time to catch up with his son and for both of them to be excited of their new home.

However, I am a bit concerned as to when should I see my boyfriend? Not sure with all this craziness going on where his son has been. You know 18 year old's...how does someone know for sure if they are not positive for this virus?

What should I do in this situation?

I would not see him again until this was over. Like you said, you have no idea where his son has been and who he has seen.

I'm sure your boyfriend's intentions mean well, but he should have known better to invite you. You are right to wonder where his son and been.

Yes, it will be an wonderful time for the two of them to catch up. That's a perfect reason to decline!

I know at least 14 days is recommended for isolation. So, if you state is social distancing and BF/DS are doing this I would think 14 days would be safe. BUT, it depends on if social distancing went on.

A very famous celebrity couple who usually live together decided to stay away from each other for two weeks when the man returned after some traveling. Evidently he stayed self isolated in a smaller house on the property for the entire 14 days to insure he didnít present w COVID-19 symptoms and carry the virus into the family home. This morningís news showed the couple finally able to hug each other and walk into their home together.

I think this was the best way to make sure all were safe and free of the virus. This is what Iíd recommend to couples and/or family members who have been living apart to insure that neither is either carrying the virus or transmitting it to others.

I would suggest you not see him again unless he isolates himself from his son and others for 14 days so he can be with you again.

Just saw something on TV about Steadman returning from a trip and Oprah told him he had to stay in the guest house for 14 days. He moved back into their big house with her today.

Be careful!

just before the COVID 19 was spreading. We came home and self quarantined for 14 days. We went no where, we saw no one. After 18 days of no human contact we went to a store to get groceries. I think as hard as it is you should not see him until it is 14 days since he was with his son. There IS NO way to know if someone has been exposed to the virus or not.
