Coronavirus. Important advice and help for those who are ‘shielding’ at home


The local NHS have an advice leaflet about the advice and support available for those who are shielding at home due to coronavirus. 

If you have had a letter from the NHS advising you to stay at home and avoid all face-to face contact it is important that you continue to follow this advice, rather than advice for the general public. The Government is currently advising people to shield until the end of June and
advising people to continue shielding until the end of June and is regularly monitoring this position.

There is lots of support available to help you manage staying at home. This includes help with getting essentials, medication, staying active, and looking after your wellbeing. Find out more in this local NHS leaflet
