This might be a slightly backwards question to what many may feel! Firstly to explain, I am a teacher and deputy head at a secondary school. I was shielding through lockdown on the government advice re asthma and have been teaching in school as normal most of this term. School feels as safe as it can be and we have had very few covid cases. When the new guide to shielding came out a couple of weeks ago I spoke to the head who said it was my choice what to do - they would put further measures in place for me at work or would support me working from home. I feel safe at work so continued to go in. A week ago the head called me in and told me he had just found out that I am not insured and would have to work at home - essentially if anything happened to me school would not be insured for any lawsuit. One other teacher in the same situation at school - we were both sent home. Last week I have been teaching from home, being live streamed on to the whiteboard - not the same but at least the kids are getting taught. School have done all they can to support us. I have found the last week really hard though and want to get back in. I have never felt I really am CEV though technically I hit the criteria (symbicort and spiriva). Most of the time I get by on a half dose of spiriva though. I have never felt in danger with asthma, never been to hospital and never felt worse than uncomfortable - hardly a description of severe asthma as far as I can see. Not an issue if we are allowed back on 2 December but worried that if not, the long term effect of not being able to go into work will have a bigger impact on my health than covid might!! If it does extend I will of course ring my gp and follow her advice. School will support me whatever (I am lucky there - have read some shocking posts from other CEV teachers where schools have been far less supportive). Really just wondered if anyone else is in the same boat - I know my health comes first (and my wife is happier now I am at home) but the truth is I don't feel particularly vulnerable. Maybe I'm just being naive! Am I being stupid?
