News – 17 April 2020 – Shielding the extremely vulnerable

The government has identified some people considered extremely vulnerable of complications from COVID19. These individuals have received a letter confirming that they should stay at home for 12 weeks (known as shielded).

If you feel you may be eligible but have not yet received a letter please check the guidance on shielding GOV.UK. Remember, if you have an underlying health condition that does not come under this shielding criteria you should continue to observe strict social distancing. If you are concerned about your work, it is important to discuss this directly with your employer as we cannot advise this.
