Shielding and the vulnerable

Advice for people at high risk

If you've been shielding

The NHS will have contacted you if you're 'extremely vulnerable'.

Letters have been sent to all cliniclly vulnerable people in Hertfordshire in light of the county's Tier 4 status, advising them to:

· stay at home as much as possible

· go outdoors carefully to exercise or to attend health appointments

· work from home (and if you can't, do not attend work)

The full advice is available here.
