Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Friday, June 12, 2020

 

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have published Shielding guidance for children and young people.

 

The guidance provides advice to members on which paediatric patient groups should be advised to 'shield' during the COVID-19 outbreak, to protect those at very high risk of severe illness from coming into contact with the virus. It also provides frequently asked questions on how 'shielding' applies to children and families.
