Plans to ease guidance for over 2 million shielding

Millions of people shielding from coronavirus (COVID-19) can spend more time outside their homes from Monday 6 July.

The Health and Social Care Secretary has announced they will be able to spend time outdoors in a group of up to 6 people including those outside of their household, while maintaining social distancing.  Those who are shielding and live alone or are single parents with children will also be able to create a ‘support bubble’ with one other household of any size, following the same rules already in place for the wider population.
