Today I finally received a shielding letter from my GP. The letter said I should have received a letter from the hospital, but as I had registered as at risk on the Gov.uk website they were sending me a copy of the original. It seems to me that the system is fairly chaotic, though I suppose the system is under huge pressure which is absolutely unprecedented.
The letter says to shield for 12 weeks, but having already shielded for 5 weeks I assume those count towards it. Somehow seeing it in writing makes one very aware of your own vulnerability, even when you know it already.
Hoping every one is keeping safe and well.
