Shielding’ is designed to protect extremely clinically vulnerable individuals by minimising all interaction between them and others to protect them from coming into contact with the COVID-19 virus.
The Scottish Government has confirmed people who are shielding can stop from 1 August 2020. This is because the rate of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Scotland is currently very low.
