Shielding and protecting extremely vulnerable people

Last updated: 1 June at 14:55

If you are classed as someone who is extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, you will be contacted directly by NHS England.

You are strongly advised to stay at home as much as possible and keep visits outside to a minimum.

You can read full guidance for people who are extremely medically vulnerable to coronavirus on GOV.UK.

Stay alert

We all need to help control the virus. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out - 2 metres apart where possible
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
