Announcement re shielding from 1 August 2020

So the govt has announced that “from Saturday 1 August, the guidance will be relaxed so clinically extremely vulnerable people will no longer be advised to shield …” and that the “government shielding support package will remain in place until the end of July …”

So presumably this means no SSP via the Statutory Sick Pay (General) (Coronavirus Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2020 (SI.No.427/2020) …

NB – in its announcement the govt helpfully says that “updated guidance for those classed as clinically extremely vulnerable will be published on …. 1 August as these measures come into force”
