Shielding and wellbeing

If you received a letter from the Scottish Government asking you to stay at home for at least 12 weeks, this is known as shielding.

The Scottish Government has produced a guide to help you understand what sort of activities are safer than others - read the Quick guide to risk for the shielding group here

If you have urgent medical needs you should contact your GP or NHS 111.
