Today the UK Government announced an extension of shielding for extremely vulnerable people until 31 March 2021.
Dr Jenny Harries, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England states that ‘officials will be advising that shielding continues until March 31 2021 for extremely vulnerable people.’
She added ‘‘Roughly 1.7 million people will be added to the shielding list in England, after experts developed an algorithm which has identified more adults at serious risk of Covid-19.”
According to health officials, letters from the NHS will arrive imminently telling people affected that they should be in the shielding group.
