Government guidance on Shielding
Everyone in England, including those who are clinically extremely vulnerable, is required to follow the new national restrictions from 5 November, which have been set out by the government and apply to the whole population. These restrictions:
- require people to stay at home, except for specific purposes
- prevent people gathering with those they do not live with, except for specific purposes
- close certain businesses and venues
The new information includes additional guidance for clinically extremely vulnerable people, to help protect you from coronavirus (COVID-19).
