Helping our Communities

From 1 April 2021,  those on the shielded patient list, known as clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV), can start following the national restrictions alongside the rest of the population in line with the government’s COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021 roadmap. CEVs are still advised to take extra precautions to keep themselves safe from COVID-19.


Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test result should stay at home and self-isolate immediately. This is because you could pass the infection on to others, even if you don’t have symptoms.

You could be fined if you do not self-isolate following a notification by NHS Test and Trace. You may be entitled to a one-off payment of £500 through the NHS Test and Trace Support Payment scheme if you are required to stay at home and self-isolate.

For more information visit Government Stay at home guidance pages.
