Coronavirus: Shielding

Shielding is the term given to support for people most vulnerable to severe illness from Coronavirus (COVID-19), due to specific underlying health conditions.

Following Scottish Government advice and a letter that was issued to those who are shielding at the end of July, shielding in Scotland is now "paused." More information on this is available from the Scottish Government's Shielding page.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact the Council on 0345 30 111 00.
