Shielding changes 'good news for some, not for others' says Shadow Minister

Commenting on the news today (May 31), that vulnerable people who have been shielding since the start of the lockdown can go out from tomorrow, Darren Millar MS – the Shadow Minister for Covid Recovery – said:

“It is surprising that this announcement regarding shielded patients wasn’t made on Friday.

“Let’s hope the letters telling people of this change actually go to the right addresses this time. While good news for some, this decision rubs salt into the wound for hundreds of thousands of less vulnerable people who still can’t see their families because of the five-mile cruel rule.”
