Chief Medical Officer - Support for Vulnerable People

Lots of people have been in touch with questions about the support available for people identified as ‘vulnerable’…..the Welsh Government has published some advice for anyone who has been identified as being at a very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus.

All those identified as being at high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (due to a serious underlying health issue) will receive a letter from the Chief Medical Officer for Wales.

This is known as a ‘shielding letter’. Most people will have received their letter by  3 April but a number of letters have been re-issued and these will be with individuals by no later than 17 April. 

The full range of guidance on coronavirus can be found on the Welsh Government website.
