Message from HFH - Shielding updated guidance

Dear Clients, 

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

The Government guidelines on individuals who are Shielding has been updated on 31st May 2020.

  • People who are shielding remain vulnerable and should continue to take precautions but can now leave their home if they wish, as long as they are able to maintain strict social distancing.
  • If you choose to spend time outdoors, this can be with members of your own household. If you live alone, you can spend time outdoors with one person from another household. Ideally, this should be the same person each time.
  • If you do go out, you should take extra care to minimise contact with others by keeping 2 metres apart. This guidance will be kept under regular review.


If you have been told that you’re clinically extremely vulnerable, you should:

  • register online for support even if you do not need additional support right now

This guidance is still advisory. You will not be fined or sanctioned if you prefer to follow the guidance on staying alert and safe (social distancing). You may also choose to remain in your own home at all times if you do not feel comfortable with any form of contact with others. However, careful time outside in the fresh air is likely to make you feel better in yourself.

If you have queries re outings with your Carers/Clients, please let your Nurse Case Manager know.

Kind regards,

Team HFH
