VULNERABLE people in Solihull ‘shielding’ from Covid-19’by mainly staying at home will continue to receive care and support after rule-changes on Monday, the council leader says.

Councillor Ian Courts said in his latest newsletter: “While many of us are enjoying more freedoms, those that are shielding because of their medical condition are still being encouraged to stay at home.

“For now, the guidance remains the same – stay at home and only go outside to exercise or to spend time outdoors with a member of your household, or with one other person from another household if you live alone.

“The guidance will change from Monday 6 July and you will be able to meet in groups of up to six people from outside your household, outdoors with social distancing.

“Alongside all this, we will continue to make wellbeing calls, check on people and make sure they’re getting medicine deliveries.

“The government will continue to provide free food and household essentials boxes until the end of July.”
