Update to Shielding Guidance

Today, the First Minister announced that shielding will be paused from 1 August. The Scottish Government will be sending out more formal communications to patients, GPs, Health Boards etc. tomorrow (24 July).

Some changes start tomorrow which are detailed in the Scottish Government Shielding route map.

Those on the shielding are advised to follow the guidance issued to the general population in Scotland. while highlighting the importance of stringent physical distancing and hygiene measures to decrease exposure to COVID-19. This is the same advice provided to those in the 'at risk' group, including those who would normally get the influenza vaccine.

Our Shielding Team will still be available if you need assistance on 01387 260600 or email C-19shield@dumgal.gov.uk
