To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what guidance he plans to put in place for people who are shielding in Tier 4 covid-19 lockdown areas.
11 January 2021
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January, a new national lockdown has been introduced to help tackle the large rise in cases of COVID-19. In addition to the new rules that apply to everyone, the Government is also advising all clinically extremely vulnerable people to shield to further protect themselves during this period.
Current guidance for clinically extremely vulnerable people is to stay at home as much as possible, apart from going outside for exercise or to attend health appointments. They are advised not to go to the shops and should work from home where possible. If unable to work from home, they should not attend the workplace.
