Guidance and Support on Shielding and Protecting the Most Vulnerable

Shielding is for people, including children, who are at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19). It's also for their family, friends and carers.

Shielding measures should be used when an extremely vulnerable person is living in their own home, with or without additional support. This includes extremely vulnerable people living in long-term care facilities.

Other vulnerable people in our communities may also need help to self-isolate, or to maintain social distancing.
