Chief Medical Officer of Wales’ advice videos regarding the end of shielding

Here at the Paul Popham Fund, we just wanted to let you know of some communications that have been released last week in the run-up to the 16th Aug, after which those of you that have been shielding will no longer need to do so.

From Monday the 10th and every day last week the Chief Medical Officer of Wales has been appearing in a video answering questions from those that have been shielding. These videos appeared on Facebook and Twitter and are still available to view. Please see links below.

Links to Mondays video – Shielding will be paused:

Links to Tuesdays video – Question: Can I cuddle my grandparents?

Links to Friday’s Video – Question: Is it safe to go back to work?

On Tuesday 11th an infographic was also published on WG social media with helpful tips/advice for those who will no longer be shielding.


Also, on Sunday 16th August the updated WG guidance and an FAQ’s doc was published on the Welsh Government Website.
