Covid-19 Shielding letters
Shielding is for people, including children, who are at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19). It’s also for their family, friends and carers.
The Scottish Government has confirmed you can stop shielding from 1 August. This is because the rate of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Scotland is currently very low.
