“For weeks people who believe that they should be shielding have been waiting for confirmation that this is the case, and for some people the letter may have been required for them to be allowed to stay at home by their employer.
“But it’s the confusion at this time of heightened anxiety that is having the biggest impact. Some people have reported having been contacted by supermarkets claiming they’re on the list, without any official confirmation from the Government. This uncertainty needs to end and it needs to end now.”
