On Monday 19 July Disability Sheffield reach the final phase of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown. Subject to a few final checks the Covid legal restrictions will be coming to an end in England. So what does that mean in practice? We’ve produced two videos on YouTube to help you to understand the changes.
Our first video is about Opening Up

You can read guidance about Coronavirus:how to stay safe and help prevent the spread from 19 July on GOV.UK here.
The government guidance on Shielding and Protecting People who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable from COVID-19 is here.
In an article which voices the concern of many, Disability Rights UK asserts that disabled people, and people with compromised immune systems, those formerly known as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) people, will be faced with the choice of shielding under their own determination with no support, or facing increased risk of infection by going out in wider society.
“The CEV list had around four million people on it.The Government has once again dismissed the lives and voices of millions of disabled people with plans for the reckless removing of safety measures.
“These planned moves feel very much as though they have been made with no thought for those who stand to lose the most if they contract a virus which is still very much present in our midst.”
