Important information if you are clinically extremely vulnerable in Tier 4.
Vulnerable in Tier 4
People who are clinically extremely vulnerable in Tier 4 are advised to follow the shielding guidance, which is to:
stay at home
don’t go to work/school or to the shops.
Guidance to the clinically extremely vulnerable has always been and remains advisory.
People who are clinically extremely vulnerable in Tier 4 will be written to, setting out the new guidance. The letter will also act as a note to employers to say that, if they cannot work from home, they are advised not go to work. They may be eligible for Statutory Sick Pay, Employment and Support Allowance, Universal Credit or the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (furlough).
This guidance will remain in place until 18 January 2021, when it will be reviewed.
