The government have published updated guidance on those who are clinically extremely vulnerable following the weekend’s announcement. Clinically extremely vulnerable people in Tier 4 areas are advised to follow shielding advice. Currently, no other areas are currently advised to shield.
The government have stated that…
“We are advising the clinically extremely vulnerable to work from home. If you cannot work from home, you are advised not to go to work and may be eligible for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), Employment Support Allowance (ESA) or Universal Credit. We are advising clinically extremely vulnerable people to stay at home as much as possible, except to go outdoors for exercise or to attend health appointments.”
