It’s my daughter’s sixth birthday coming up in one week. She has been looking forward to her party since her last birthday and has helped me organise her party. She is inviting the whole class plus some family members and we’ve booked a hall with an entertainer. I’ve already ordered the cake, got the decorations and party food ingredients. But with all this Coronavirus fear, I just don’t know if we should still go ahead? My daughter will be absolutely gutted if we have to postpone and I’m not sure if I will get any refunds on cancelling/postponing so close to the event. But I’m not sure if it’s irresponsible to continue. Or if we do, she’ll be so upset if her friends don’t come because parents are afraid. What should I do?
