  • COVID-19: What is shielding?

    Created: 31/03/2020

    Shielding is a measure to protect extremely vulnerable people from coming into contact with coronavirus, by minimising all interaction between them and others.

    Those who are extremely vulnerable should:

    • not leave their homes
    • minimise all non-essential contact with other members of their household

    This is to protect those who are at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) from coming into contact with the virus.

    If you think you have a condition that makes you extremely vulnerable or you have received a letter from NHS Scotland, you’re strongly advised to shield yourself to reduce your chance of getting coronavirus (COVID-19).

    Look to NHS inform for more information
