Shielding guidance update

From 1 April 2021, if you are identified as clinically extremely vulnerable you are no longer advised to shield.

You should continue to take extra precautions to protect yourself. You should:

  • work from home if you can, but if that is not possible, you can return to the workplace
  • consider going to the shops or pharmacy at quieter times of the day
  • keep your number of social interactions low
  • limit the amount of time you spend in places where you cannot maintain social distancing.

Children who are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable should return to school or college.

More information is available on changes to shielding advice on GOV.UK
