The government has revised its guidance on those over 60 or who are deemed to be clinically vulnerable and could be at higher risk of severe illness from coronavirus. If you fall into this category, you should:
- be especially careful to follow the rules and minimise your contacts with others
- continue to wash your hands carefully and more frequently than usual and maintain thorough cleaning of frequently touched areas in your home and/or workspace.
There is support available if you need it. Please contact us at Caring Together if you need any help or advice, or for more information about other support available in the city see: https://www.leeds.gov.uk/coronavirus/people-and-communities
Current information on who is classed as ‘vulnerable’ or clinically extremely vulnerable is available here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november#protecting-people-more-at-risk-from-coronavirus. (If you fall into the latter category you should have received a letter giving you detailed guidance)
