Am I being paranoid about not wanting people in my house?

Got into a huge fight with my fiancé last nite bc he invited his sister/husband to stay with us for the weekend in a couple weeks. I’m still deathly afraid of COVID and haven’t had anyone stay in the house since March or really even visit other than a quick necessary drop-by. Not even my mother has stayed with us. Am i being paranoid here or is anyone else back to usual and having a get-together at home. We’re in Texas if that helps.

I would make them quarantine before coming, but I would allow them to come if they did.

It depends what you are comfortable with but we have been living semi normal. We visit family and they come to our house too. Take precautions but don’t let it control your life.

No you are not. You are only advocating for your health and no one should put you down do that. A home is your safe place where you shouldn’t have to worry about the outside world. I am doing the same thing!

You are doing the right thing. I think if they take precautions and you know them well enough to be responsible, you should be ok. You can where your mask.

You do what’s best for you. If you don’t feel comfortable then don’t do it. We haven’t let anyone in our house.

Everyone has their own comfort level! Personally, we are not letting Covid rule our lives. We’ve traveled and stayed with friends, and we have friends and family over. We’re in CA where out Gov likes to shut everything down…so connecting with friends and family is crucial to our mental health! Do what makes you and your family feel comfortable! :blush:

I wouldn’t be comfortable why can’t they stay in a hotel?

I’m in Texas as well and have people over. You have to get on with life and stop living in fear. You can take precautions like masks and having people sanitize their hands, but you can pick up the virus simply by going to the store, going to get gas etc…

No. You do what YOU are comfortable with.

Paranoid in my opinion. I’m in Arkansas. One of my friends that lives in Texas got Covid and she came to stay with us two weeks after she recovered. My husband’s brother lives in Seattle and he stayed with us two weeks after that. My stepdaughter lives in Maryland and flew here for the summer and back. She will be flying here again in December. We also took a family trip to FL this summer where they don’t believe in masks :rofl: and we were fine. Wash your hands and your house and you’ll be fine BUT if you’re really that uncomfortable, maybe you could help them find a hotel or Airbnb?

Can you have them get tested before coming to visit? My husbands sister had a baby and we went and got tested before we visited.
