Due to the recent rise in Coronavirus infection rates, Welsh Government are now advising those individuals who are “clinically extremely vulnerable” to no longer attend work or school outside the home. This is particularly the case for those whose work requires them to be in regular or sustained contact with other people, or where individuals share a poorly ventilated workspace for long periods.
Letters from the Chief Medical Officer for Wales (CMO) will be issued confirming this advice, but will take some time to reach individuals due to the festive period. These letters can be used as evidence for the purposes of claiming statutory sick pay.
