The latest guidance on Shielding  and protecting people who are clinically extremely vulnerable from COVID-19

There have been changes in guidance for people who have been shielding since the beginning of the pandemic. Please check the government link below to find out the changes.

Shielding guidance

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Use the NHS 111 Symptoms Checker

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

How long to stay at home

if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days

if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible
