Go home for Christmas?Watch
So my hometown is under Tier 3 restrictions when we come out of lockdown. Originally my parents were going to drive and get me, as I've got too much stuff to take a train home (Christmas presents + schoolbooks, and I have about 3 transfers with walking inbetween if I got the train), however with my hometown being in the top 5 Covid cases in the country, I don't know whether to risk it? I'd be the only one left in my flat, and I'm already struggling and miserable without my pets, which have been a lot of my support when outside of uni. However, I don't have the best relationship with my family, and I don't know what to do.
Should I go home for Christmas? Should I stay at university? I don't know what to do, and I'm going nuts trying to work it out!
Is your uni offering the covid rapid tests? You can travel home and back to uni for educational reasons Many many places are still at tier 3 but students travelling home immediately join their family's bubble when they return home anyway. The email I got for the rapid test says you can supposedly isolate at home if necessary or in the uni accommodation.
Personally, I would take the opportunity to go home if you can as you might not get to see your family them for a while especially when next term starts again, especially if your uni's far from home.
