During Chapter 3 I got a prompt saying if I progressed the main story I would be unable to include Ethel in my party. How long will Ethel be excluded from the party if I advance the main plot? Will I eventually be able to re-add her?

"once you enter the office, you'll be unable to include Ethel in the party"

Will I eventually be able to re-add her?

Yes.

How long will Ethel be excluded from the party if I advance the main plot?

Until chapter 6. Worth noting however that she doesn't rejoin automatically.

Making Ethel rejoin

(Chapter 6 spoilers ahead. I've tried to be as vague as possible)

You'll need to unlock the Seraph class, and level up both it and Flash Fencer to level 10. The pre-requisites to unlock Seraph are story-related, but the unlock mission itself is still optional.
After that, you'll want to go to the lab on the back of the colony where you started the Seraph unlock mission. You'll be given a choice, with one of the options making Ethel rejoin. If you choose the "wrong" option, you'll still be able to choose the "right" one.

    It’s worth noting that this cannot be done until chapter 6, and doesn’t happen automatically; it requires a side quest Commented Sep 5, 2022 at 12:26
  • What do you need to do to get Ethel to rejoin the party?
