I hope everyone is keeping safe and well.
As confirmed by the Government yesterday another National Lockdown is to come into effect on the 5th November and this time around no shielding for the clinically vulnerable which does cause some concern to me.
During the first lockdown I was furloughed on health grounds from March to August. When I went back to work my firm (I work for solicitors as a secretary) implemented strict COVID 19 measures and to be honest I have felt very safe in my workplace however it cannot be 100% safe and there is still the risk that this dreadful virus can be brought into the workplace from outside. To us that are clinically vulnerable we are more at risk of contracting COVID and because of our suppressed immune systems we are more likely to become poorly and may require hospital intervention. Why was shielding not implemented for a second time to protect us?
Stay safe everyone
