The Government has said that people currently shielding will no longer need to shield after Friday 31 July.
Points to remember:
- Food parcels and prescription collections for ‘shielded’ residents will continue until Friday 31 July.
- People who are shielding can register for priority shopping at the major supermarkets until 17 July.
- NHS volunteers will continue to support the shielded group.
- Up to date information about the Government’s statements on COVID-19 is available at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
The shielding programme may resume in future if circumstances change.
Edit (29 June): Cllr Mark Inskip has pointed out that everyone on the shielding list should have received a new letter from the Government last week on the changing arrangements of 6 July and then 1 August.
