Zulu1960 profile image

Hi I'm currently self isolating for 7 days , I have been told by my local asthma nurse to isolate due to cough .

Also can you please advise me on the 12 week shielding rule. As I have Asthma and I work ,my company are concerned . My nurse as asked me to contact you for further information .

I am on the MART regime and take the following inhaler .

Forstair 100/6 . 2 puffs twice a day up to 8 when needed

I am sorry to bother you at this busy time, and look forward to your reply.

Thank you , did check the other day but was still a bit confused . it didn't seem to answer the question. Will check with GP on monday . Everyone stay safe .

Check with your GP. The medical conditions classed as extremely vulnerable are listed on the government website. Medication is not listed.

Hi Zulu,

I hope you found the answer to your question

Stay Safe

Thanks I have been in touch with my Gp . He told me I was borderline for being on the 12 week shielding , because I have not had to attend hospital in the last 12 months I could return to work , with stricked social distancing
