Get Government help if you are vulnerable

If you have received a text/ letter from the NHS that you are in the “extremely vulnerable” group, or if you are vulnerable, please register to receive government support services.

What you should do

The City of London Corporation is dedicated to ensuring that we protect the most vulnerable, support our residents and continue to provide key services during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The latest Government instruction is to stay at home and:

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay two metres (six feet) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Some non-essential services may need to be closed or operate at reduced levels to support social distancing for staff and service users.

Some people may need extra support at this time, and we are actively encouraging good neighbourliness and support through established local community groups.

Washing your hands is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself and others from the virus. The NHS provides guidance on hand-washing.
