Shielding Advice – From 10 July

The advice is to keep shielding until at least 31 July 2020. From 10 July, our advice is that people who are shielding at home can:

  • stop physically distancing from the people they live with
  • use indoor toilets in other people’s houses when visiting them outdoors
  • meet up to 8 people outdoors, from 2 other households, in a single day
  • travel further than 5 miles from your house, as far as they want
  • book self-catering accommodation or travel to a second home – only to stay over with people they live with at home

These changes only apply to those who are shielding and do not live in a residential care or nursing home. Your care home should be following the Care
