JUST an observation I’d like to share regarding the at-risk groups during the current Covid-19 outbreak.

I would like to point out that as a general rule grandparents are of an age that does not place them in the at greater risk category (40-55).

The people making these decisions are adult and perhaps thinking of their own grandparents who are probably in their 70s but are great grandparents to school children.

My point is that many grandparents could look after their grandchildren and allow many people to go back to work.
