New Government Guidelines for Coronavirus



People falling into this extremely vulnerable group include:

1.   Solid organ transplant recipients.

2.   People with specific cancers:

·         people with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radical radiotherapy for lung cancer

·         people with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who are at any stage of treatment

·         people having immunotherapy or other continuing antibody treatments for cancer

·         people having other targeted cancer treatments which can affect the immune system, such as protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors

·         people who have had bone marrow or stem cell transplants in the last 6 months, or who are still taking immunosuppression drugs

3.   People with severe respiratory conditions including all cystic fibrosis, severe asthma and severe COPD.

4.   People with rare diseases and inborn errors of metabolism that significantly increase the risk of infections (such as SCID, homozygous sickle cell).

5.   People on immunosuppression therapies sufficient to significantly increase risk of infection.

6.   Women who are pregnant with significant heart disease, congenital or acquired.


Because if they do:

We are strongly advising people, including education staff, with serious underlying health conditions which put them at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19), to rigorously follow shielding measures in order to keep themselves safe. Staff in this position must not attend work. More advice on this can be found in the guidance on shielding.


If a child in one of the categories outlined above lives in a household with someone who is in the most vulnerable health groups, as set out in the guidance on shielding, they should only attend an education or childcare setting if stringent social distancing can be adhered to and the child is able to understand and follow those instructions, which may not be the possible for very young children and older children without the capacity to adhere to the instructions on social distancing. Settings should allow staff who live with someone in the most vulnerable health groups, to work from home where possible.
