Guidance on shielding and protecting people who are clinically extremely vulnerable from COVID-19

By June 23, 2020National News

Published 23rd June 

On 22 June the government set out a series of steps for further relaxing shielding guidance which will come into effect on 6 July and 1 August. 

From 6 July, the government will be advising: 

  • you may, if you wish, meet in a group of up to 6 people outdoors, including people from different households, while maintaining strict social distancing 
  • you no longer need to observe social distancing with other members of your household 
  • in line with the wider guidance for single adult households (either an adult living alone or with dependent children under 18) in the general population, you may from this date, if you wish, also form a ‘support bubble’ with one other household. All those in a support bubble will be able to spend time together inside each other’s homes, including overnight, without needing to socially distance 

From 1 August the government will be advising that shielding will be paused
