Royal College of Paediatrics advice on shielding during COVID
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has produced guidance for paediatricians and other health professionals. Children and young people should be advised to 'shield' during the COVID-19 outbreak, in order to protect those at very high risk of severe illness from coming into contact with the virus. It also provides frequently asked questions on how 'shielding' applies to children and families. The advice is there to help clinicians in their discussions with families around shielding in the UK.
