Coronavirus Support for Communities


There is no longer separate advice for people on the shielding list. You can follow the same guidance as the rest of Scotland. To stay safe, you should strictly follow two metre physical distancing and hand washing measures. Remember to also wear a face covering in shops, inside hospitality settings and on public transport if you are able to.

You can find out more about shielding and what it means on the NHS Inform website.

If you or a family member has received a shielding letter from the government, and require further support or assistance you can contact the Shetland Coronavirus Support Hub on Freephone number 0800 030 8780, or by emailing
