Changes to advice for people shielding from coronavirus are being introduced from Monday 1 June.

People who have been shielding can now take exercise outdoors. Outdoor exercise is unlimited, as long as individuals follow social distancing rules and hygiene practices.

Those who are shielding can meet outside with people from another household – but should not go into another person’s house or share food with them.

There are no other changes being made to the advice for those who are shielding at this stage. People who are shielding should continue to follow all the other advice previously given. They should not go shopping or attend work outside of home. They should continue to have food and medicine delivered to them.
