National Guidance: Enhanced Response Area

Due to our very high case rate, Torbay is currently an Enhanced Response Area along with Devon, Cornwall, Plymouth and the Isles of Scilly. This means the government has prioritised our areas for additional support to reduce case rates. 

To find out the latest information and advice about coronavirus in Torbay see our coronavirus section.

Help for the previously Clinically Extremely Vulnerable

Find out what help and support continues to be available.

The shielding programme has now ended in England. This means that people who were previously considered clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) will not be advised to shield in the future or follow specific national guidance. The government will continue to assess the situation and the risks posed by COVID-19 and, based on clinical advice, will respond accordingly to keep the most vulnerable safe.
