As the Government and NHS ask everybody to do their bit to stop the spread of coronavirus COVID-19, people are taking very different approaches to the advice.
We've been asked to stop all unnecessarily transport and socialising, and anyone who can should now work from home.
Many are carrying on as normal while following the advice, while others are making huge changes to their day to day lives.
But one mummy-blogger believes there are five different 'types' of coronavirus mums – and thousands are admitting to fitting into one of the categories, reports the Daily Record.
According to Maddie Reed, people are either a Kate, a Lily, a Stacy, a Margaret or a Chelsea.
Posting on Facebook, she writes: "The 5 Types of coronavirus Moms
"The Kates: well educated, professional mothers who have been prepared for the pandemic since they first heard about it on NPR during their morning commute.
"She has contingency plans for childcare and a plumber installing bidets on all of their toilets.
"The Chelseas: stay-at-home mom with multiple children. She is calm and rational and has her home well stocked with enough food and supplies to last them several weeks.
"She is on her way to Trader Joe’s (with a face mask and freshly washed hands, of course) for more frozen vegetables.
"The Margarets: just realized yesterday that this might mean she has to stay at home with her children for weeks on end without any adult conversation other than her spouse. She is now afraid for her mental stability.
"Disney plus, wine, and grocery delivery services will be her only hope.
"The Lilys: part time working mother and homeschooler, promoting her self empowerment and business on insta stories. Her home is filled with the heavenly scent of essential oils and her fruits and vegetables are soaking in the sink.
"Currently googling how to make organic hand sanitizer for her non-vaccinated, vegetarian children.
"The Stacys: has firmly placed herself in the “f**k it” zone. She does not give a shit about the threat of covid-19 and will continue on with life as if everything were normal.
"She will be the mom willing to host play dates during quarantine and will definitely have wine to share when you run out."
Other parents have found her list hilarious and have been putting themselves into one of the categories.
After her post was shared thousands of times Maddie said she was shocked at the reaction to her last minute post.
What is the latest government advice on coronavirus?
The government has advised the British public to:
- Avoid pubs, clubs, restaurants and all social gatherings
- Cease all unnecessary travel
- Everyone should work from home where possible
- Mass gatherings and sporting events have been cancelled
- Avoid “all but essential travel” to more than 30 countries
If one person in any household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days
Pregnant women, those over 70, and people with certain health conditions have been asked to stay at home for 12 weeks
Schools will remain open
She said: "I was not expecting this post to go viral. It was written very quickly while I was waiting to pick my kids up from school early last week and was just poking fun at the wide range of response to the early panic that was happening on social media at the time.
"Yes, I missed lots of amazing types of mothers. A giant thank you to our hard working moms in healthcare!!!"
