We are working to support vulnerable residents and tenants throughout the pandemic, and also working with partners to proactively support people sleeping rough

If you have been identified as extremely vulnerable, from 1 April you are no longer advised to shield. However, it’s important to take extra precautions to protect yourself from coronavirus. Please continue to keep the number of social interactions that you have low and try to reduce the amount of time you spend in settings where you are unable to maintain social distancing.

Everyone is advised to continue to work from home where possible, but if you cannot work from home you should now attend your workplace. Your employer is required to take steps to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace and should be able to explain to you the measures they have put in place to keep you safe at work.

Clinically extremely vulnerable pupils and students should return to their school or other educational settings.
