Guidance for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable to Covid-19 has been updated. A text message has been sent to CEV people to let them know that when we enter Tier 3 on 2nd Dec, they are advised to:

  • Work from home if you can. If you cannot, talk to your employer about reducing your risk. If you cannot agree arrangements they may be able to furlough you.
  • Children should go to school.
  • Avoid shops if you can, or go at the quietest times.
  • Prescriptions will no longer necessarily be delivered for free and to check with the pharmacy.
  • Continue to go outdoors everyday & keep up social contact safely: by phone or outdoors at 2m distance.
  • Local help is still available www.leeds.gov.uk/shielding or 0113 3760330

The guidance can be accessed online here. This graphic provides a summary of the advice.
