Updated advice on shielding – March 18

The Chief Medical Officer has reviewed the advice to people who are clinically extremely vulnerable and in light of the current context of significantly lower cases across Wales, has advised that shielding measures should be paused on 31 March. This means from 1 April you can:

  • go to work, if you cannot work from home, as long as the business is Covid-secure (has taken reasonable measures to minimise risk to employees);
  • children who have been following shielding measures can return to school when appropriate for their year group
