Check a shielding note

This was a service for employers or the Department of Work and Pensions to check that a coronavirus (COVID-19) shielding note was valid.

This service is paused

People at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable) in England are not currently advised to shield.

You cannot use this service to check shielding notes for Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).

If shielding advice changes in the future, this service may be reinstated.
