With government announcements last night of new guidance for the UK Nations, Kidney Care UK has published up-dated Coronavirus guidance for people with kidney disease. Read the guidance here: https://www.kidneycareuk.org/news-and-campaigns/coronavirus-advice/
Welsh Government has been consistent with its message to advise people to work from home where possible and only travel to work if it
is not possible to work from home.
Yesterday new Wales-wide measures were announced by the First Minister, to include early closing times and table service for pubs, cafes and restaurants.
This follows measures taken earlier this week to introduce local lockdowns in six local authority areas in Wales: Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport and Rhondda Cynon Taff. You can find out the latest information on local lockdowns here: https://gov.wales/local-lockdown
At this time there is no re-introduction of advice to the clinically extremely vulnerable to shield, except for in specific local lockdown areas where shielding patients will be contacted directly. The Renal Association also recommends that patients within the first three months of a kidney transplant should continue to follow full shielding. People on the transplant waiting list should speak to their kidney doctor about whether it is advisable for them to continue to shield.
