Who will be asked to stay in

Ramy22

Hello,

I have Bronchiectasis and asthma. All is controlled.... I take medication and have a Nebulizer for the salt and water stuff and take 3 antibiotics a week. I am fine with all of that. I don’t need carers and I am well.

Do you think I will be on that list?

I also have the flu jab.

Read the post BLF just put on the site. All conditions are on there. A lot depends on your lung capacity.

Thank you. I’ll have a look. How do I work lung capacity out but have always believed it to be ok.

Thanks for answering me. I’ll find the post.

I don’t know.... I called my GP because I wanted him to say I could go teach my SEN class who are still going to school. He said I had to stay home

Yes, you should self isolate.

Ok, thank you.

Just looked at BLF info and sounds like you will have to hide away for 12 weeks, as will I 😢. If you have nebuliser treatment for bronchiectasis you’re in that group. I’ve had more than 2 courses of steroid in a year (lots more) and attend severe asthma clinic in addition to Mepo so....await my letter too ! Keep well x

You keep well too.... but I am well with the treatment. Oh dear, well we’re all in it together. Xx

You will get a letter if you are on the list. We cant give that information .

I know, just wait and see. In the meantime I don’t think I can teach at my special needs class today. I’ll check with the GP. Thanks for your help.

Mary you should definitely be in the 12 week isolation in my personal opinion. I have bronch and it’s under control with just a Fostair inhaler. I’m different in that I’m 65 and retired so I don’t have work and income worries. I decided to self isolate even before the 12 week recommendation. I’ve never received any letter telling me to stay indoors though my doctor has told me I should.

I would hope that your workplace will be understanding of your circumstances.

Stay well and safe

I'm the same as you.... I will self isolate anyway, because I want to avoid it at all costs. Lung capacity afterwards may be greatly reduced.

You will have to.... I was told to this morning!

I’m same as you I take it you have fostair a spiriva as well think we will b at risk as we are bad even with any virus stay in and b safe xx

Hi, unfortunately I think you might well be on list of vulnerable people, we won't know for sure until that little envelope comes through the door.

We came out to the Canaries for a break from the British winter and are now stranded here. At least the weather is better and warmer we will just have to stick it out. It's not as bed as mainland Spain.

Keep taking the meds and keep well
