New advice to those who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable
Updated 29th January 2021
The advice to those who are clinically extremely vulnerable to no longer attend work or school outside the home was put in place until 7th February and the letters that were issued covered the period to this date.
The Chief Medical Officer has reviewed the position and indicated that the period this advice covers should extend to 31st March. This takes into account the ongoing high incidence of virus in our communities and our continuing learning around the impacts of new strains of the virus. New letters will issue to those on the shielding patient list over the next fortnight.
A written statement will be released at 12pm today with further details at https://gov.wales/.
