Advice for people at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
People at high risk (clinically extremely vulnerable) from coronavirus (COVID-19) are advised to follow the same guidance as everyone else. This means you are no longer advised to stay at home (shield).
But there are still things you can do to help keep yourself safe.
- get vaccinated – find out how to book your COVID-19 vaccine
- wait for at least 14 days after you've had your 2nd dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before meeting with people
- meet people outside if possible
- open doors and windows to let in fresh air if meeting people inside
- ask friends and family to take a rapid lateral flow test before visiting you
- limit the number of people you meet and avoid crowded places
- wear a face covering when it's hard to stay away from other people – particularly indoors or in crowded places
- wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day
People at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable) in England are not currently advised to shield.
