Welsh Government issuing letters to most vulnerable.

Letters to individuals identified as in need of shielding are being sent out this week. Accessible formats are being produced.

Only the most vulnerable people should expect a "shielding letter" from the Welsh Government, Wales' health minister has said.

Vaughan Gething said there had been “some confusion” around who would be written to as part of the government’s response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Speaking on BBC Radio Wales’ Breakfast with Claire Summers programme, Mr Gething said 81,000 people across Wales had been identified as needing a letter.

The document will allow them to access certain support services, including food delivery.

Mr Gething urged people still waiting for a letter to arrive to wait until the end of the week. However he also warned some of those thinking they should be getting a letter that they won’t necessarily receive one. “If people say, ‘I feel vulnerable, I want a letter’, that isn’t the basis on which those letters are going out.” [Source: BBC Wales News]
