@espoir, I'd like to add my welcome. As @johnbishop suggested, I moved your message to this existing discussion to hear from others who may be in similar circumstances and other healthcare workers like @nadine89 @georgette12 @kristennursepatient @astaingegerdm and @dfenderso
If you want my opinion, and it's only an opinion, I have to agree with your husband. Might I assume if you have an adult son, that both you and your husband are in the age category that is or borders on higher risk? You mention that you are high-risk. I suspect that your son wants your support, but also knows that he needs to think of your health. Moving to a hotel might be a good option if your home doesn't allow for complete separation from your son, for example separate living area, his own bathroom, no shared space.
Does your home allow for complete separate areas? What does your son think?
Hello @espoir, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I know it has to be extremely difficult for you wanting to support your son but also being in the high risk category which I'm sure is what is worrying your husband. There is another discussion similar to yours that you may want to with meet other members in similar situations and see if they have any suggestions to help.
