The future of shielding in Scotland - online session

28 July 2020

Your views matter

Scottish Government says that they are strengthening the evidence base about who may need to shield again in the future, and will continue to gather feedback to understand the experiences of those shielding. Scottish Government has explained that, should the infection rate rise again, shielding guidance may be reintroduced at a local or national level.

Genetic Alliance UK will continue to feed back your views, concerns and suggestions to Scottish Government. You can share your views on the changes to shielding guidance by emailing:

We will also be holding an online session on Tuesday 4 August (2pm) to discuss the new guidance and we would like to hear your views.
