The council announced their website on Monday, March 29, that the booklet would be issued to all residents that were considered Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV), after the government announced that CEV residents would no longer need to shield, and can now follow national restrictions in place to stay safe.

These changes include leaving the house, supermarket shopping, returning to school, college, or workplace, if working from home is not possible.

A spokesman for the Bracknell Forest Council said: "In line with government guidance, from Thursday 1 April, clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) residents no longer need to shield and can follow national restrictions in place for everyone to stay safe.

"Coming out of shielding after months spent indoors may be very daunting for many, but help is available from a number of organisations.
