BHIVA has released a statement following recent texts that appear to have been sent to people with well controlled HIV advising them to shield.

For people living with HIV whose HIV is well controlled, BHIVA guidelines are that they don’t need to shield on basis of HIV alone (i.e where there are no other underlying conditions for which they may have to shield). However, if they have a CD4 count less than 50 or recent opportunistic illness they should be advised to shield. To read the statement click here
