The NHS is contacting people extremely vulnerable to coronavirus
If the NHS considers you as extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, it will send you a letter with advice about what you need to do to keep yourself and others safe. People in the extremely vulnerable group usually have complex health conditions, such as severe asthma.
Speak to your GP or care team if you have not been contacted and think you should have been.
If you are in the extremely vulnerable group, you will need to do what the NHS calls 'shielding'.
In England, people who are ‘shielding’ and staying home will have new guidelines, released in stages over the summer.
