I'm trying to come up with an email to send my parents stating my expectations. My family and I have been social distancing only seeing daycare families during this time. I get not everyone is able to do that.

That being said, I would like to let my daycare parents know that we're all in this together. The decisions that they make effect our small group. One Mom is bored. She's not used to being at home with her family all the time.

I just recently had a dc girl that needed a COVID-19 test, because of symptoms she had. Her Mom admitted that she's been taking her in to stores to go clothes shopping so she didn't have to deal with shipping. She could have left her home with her Dad, but didn't. The test luckily came back negative.

It's taken a long time to get here where I live, but the numbers are starting to double in our little community. I have two sets of parents that are level headed, and two that believe every conspiracy theory possible and tell me about it. It's draining to talk to them, because while I ask for good communication between us I can't handle to hear how their third cousin knows all about the virus and they're sending their kids to school, or that it's really just a cold and it's nothing to worry about. How do I politely tell them that I don't care what their cousin is doing, and that I don't care that they think it's going to be over when the election is over. If that's true I hope it is, but I don't want to hear about it.

This whole thing is very frustrating and stressful. I love my job and don't want to close my doors, and it wouldn't be good financially, but I'm starting to dread every day.

What can I say to let them know that their opinions on the virus aren't welcome and I hope that they try to stay safe.
