Support after shielding

Lady shopping in supermarket

In line with government guidance, from Thursday 1 April, clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) residents no longer need to shield and can follow national restrictions in place for everyone to stay safe.

The change in guidance means those who have previously been shielding will be able to leave the house, visit the supermarket, return to school or college, or return to the workplace, if working from home is not available.

Coming out of shielding after months spent indoors may be very daunting for many, but help is available from a number of organisations. Bracknell Forest residents who have been shielding will receive our ‘Support After Shielding’ booklet, which includes information about where to go for mental and physical support while they return to a more normal way of life.

The booklet is also available to read and download from our website. For more information, please see our support for CEV page.
