A change in the advice for people who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) to Covid-19 is planned.

 

Updated advice for CEV people - Covid-19 Coronavirus Newry

 

Since 26 December 2020, CEV people have been advised to adhere to additional steps to keep themselves safe from exposure to Covid-19, including advice not to attend the workplace if they are unable to work from home.

 

 

In recognition of the improving picture in terms of the activity of the virus in the community, a graduated easing of the advice for CEV people is planned, to commence on 12 April 2021.

The first step will be easing of the advice around going to the workplace.

From 12 April, if you are CEV you should continue to work from home where this is possible.

If it is not possible, you can attend your workplace, provided your employer has taken the proper measures to ensure social distancing in your place of work, and you can travel to work in a way that allows for social distancing.

Future steps will see the gradual easing of other elements of advice for CEV people and will be linked to the easing of restrictions more generally.

 

 

Commenting on the proposed change, the Chief Medical Officer Dr Michael McBride, said, “From the outset, protecting the most vulnerable people from Covid-19 has been a key priority.

“If the current good progress in relation to the virus is maintained, I am pleased to recommend that CEV people will be able to attend work after 12 April, provided the proper measures have been taken regarding the biosecurity of the workplace.

“This is an important step to helping CEV people re-engage with everyday life with confidence,” he added.

 

 

Future steps will see the gradual easing of other elements of advice for CEV people and will be linked to the easing of restrictions more generally.

The planned easing of advice will be subject to an ongoing review of the status of the virus in Northern Ireland.
