New Shielding Guidance

  • Posted

Public Health England has issued new guidance to those categorised as extremely clinically vulnerable.

It states that, from 1 April 2021, they are no longer advised to shield (and will no longer be eligible for SSP or similar benefits as a result of being advised to shield). It states: “Everyone is currently advised to work from home where possible. If you cannot work from home, you should go to work.”

The letter reminds recipients that they should still obey applicable lockdown laws, and reminds them of basic protective measures such as hands, face, space.
