From Monday 6 July, people who have been shielding during the coronavirus pandemic can start to go outside and meet with others.

The shielding guidelines will be further relaxed from Saturday 1 August, to allow them to visit shops, places of worship, and return to work or school.  Government food parcels will also stop from this date.
