Around 2.2 million extremely vulnerable people across England were identified as being at most risk from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) mainly because of an underlying severe health condition. These are people of all ages that have been advised to follow shielding guidance – known as Operation Shield.
A range of support was in place in Coventry to support the individuals included in the shielding programme that enabled people to self-isolate at home by providing a regular supply of essential food and medication (if appropriate).
Following the Government's announcement, Operation Shield will come to an end on 31 July 2020.
