This week the Government made two important changes to their guidance about coronavirus.
Firstly they laid out their road map for those shielding and announced they intend to 'pause' it from 1 August.
Secondly, they announced plans to relax guidelines for the wider community.
But what does this mean for people with MS? Here we have rounded up information we have found. We cannot take responsibility for the information the links contain although we have ensured they have come from reputable sources. If in doubt, please refer to the UK Government’s website: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Whatever the guidance says you CAN do, please remember to always be careful and only do what YOU are comfortable with.
