Covid 19 Information from ME Association

posted 3 Apr 2020, 13:01 by Gemma Richards

Hi all, 

A few people have been emailing me questioning if they should have a letter to shelter for 12 weeks. According to Me association anyone with a CFS condition is deemed in the vulnerable group so should shelter for 12 weeks. Link is here.…/me-association-full-gui…/.

As per normal, even the government are confused by CFS conditions and whether we are vulnerable or not.

Letters from GP are actually issued by government and as yet we have not received one even for Rebecca's asthma. I was informed if i need a letter for my employer to contact GP but if not just follow the shelter guidelines for 12 weeks then review. Hope this helps.

Please take care and see you soon I hope.
