Should I still be in work?

Hi, I'm confused.
I have palindromic arthritis in my hands, non - ankylosing spondylitis in my back. My rheumatologist says I'm at risk, as I work front line A & E. But my manager said I'm fine to be in work.

    Hi Semlohenaid and welcome to the Online Community.

    That does indeed sound very confusing. To determine your level of risk you can work out your risk score here: COVID-19 - assessing your risk.

    If you think you should be self-isolating and there is a conflict, then perhaps a letter or advisory from your rheumatologist may be needed? As I am totally unfamiliar with systems within the Health Service, it sounds as though you need help from within your organisation to make matters clearer.

    Best wishes
