Guidance on protecting people most likely to get very poorly from coronavirus (shielding)

This guidance is for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable, including children. It's also for their family, friends and carers.

People who are clinically extremely vulnerable should have received a letter telling them they're in this group or been told by their GP.

It's for situations where a clinically extremely vulnerable person is living at home, with or without additional support. This includes clinically extremely vulnerable people living in long-term care facilities for the elderly or people with special needs.

If you have been told that you're clinically extremely vulnerable, you should:

  • follow the advice in this guidance. Click through for the full guidance document here to GOV.UK
  • register online even if you do not need additional support now

The guidance is also available in the following languages:

GOV.UK has also published guidance for young people on shielding and protecting people most likely to become unwell if they catch coronavirus.  Please use click on this link -  GOV.UK  - to access this guidance.
