Under updated government guidance, people who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable (ie shielding) should only go out for exercise and to attend health appointments.

The updated guidance for clinically extremely vulnerable people strongly advises:

  • Stay at home as much as possible, although people can exercise outside in their support bubble
  • Avoid all non-essential travel, except to GP and hospital appointments unless told otherwise
  • Don’t go to any shops or pharmacies
  • Don’t go to work if you cannot work from home – you may be eligible for statutory sick pay or other allowances – but people in the same household can still attend work
  • Most children who were shielding no longer need to be and can go to school – but parents should check with their GP if they are unsure
  • Children who live with someone who is clinically extremely vulnerable should still go to school
