Coronavirus: millions shielding in England can go outside from Monday, says Robert Jenrick – video
Goverment guidance requiring 2.2 million people in at-risk groups to stay indoors is to be relaxed in England from Monday, the communities minister has announced. Robert Jenrick confirmed that people currently shielding will be able to spend time with their households or, if they live alone, with one person from another household. The full guidance will be posted on the gov.uk website. ‘Now that we’ve passed the peak, the risk to those shielding is lower,’ Jenrick said.
