Guidance on shielding was published in July 2021 by the government. Although shielding has been paused, the government is advising clinically extremely vulnerable people to continue to take extra precautions to protect themselves.

People are advised to:

• meet outside if possible

• make sure and indoor space where you meet is well ventilated

• consider whether the people you will meet have been vaccinated

• work from home, where possible

• wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
