Vulnerable residents urged to still stay at home

DCC is urging vulnerable residents to remain at home despite changes to the lockdown restrictions. Around 34,000 people in Devon have been identified as having an underlying health condition that puts them at very high risk of severe illness if they catch coronavirus.

The NHS has advised them to not to leave their homes until at least the end of June, even for essential supplies and exercise, in order to minimise face-to-face contact and prevent being exposed to the virus. There is no change to this guidance, and the rigorous ‘shielding’ measures introduced to help keep those who are considered extremely clinically vulnerable safe are still in place.
