COVID-19 Shielding Update Posted on 19 May 2020

Staying at Home and Sheilding

If you’re clinically extremely vulnerable, you’re strongly advised to stay at home at all times and avoid any face-to-face contact to protect yourself.

This is called ‘shielding’ and the advice is:

  • Do not leave your house.
  • Do not attend any gatherings, including gatherings of friends and families in private spaces, for example, family homes, weddings and religious services.
  • Strictly avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • The Government is currently advising people to shield until 30 June 2020 and is regularly monitoring this position.
