Someone living with an individual who has been advised to adopt shielding measures to protect them from contracting coronavirus – because they are considered to be at very high risk of severe illness if they do become infected – does not have to take the same steps themselves. However, while Judy may not be considered as vulnerable as Richard (due to his kidney transplant and anti-rejection regimen, which renders him immunosuppressed), her age does put her at increased risk from coronavirus. In this instance, it may be prudent for the pharmacy to try to sort out a delivery of the medication Richard needs, or for Judy to leave the prescription in a place where a friend or family member can pick it up, bring it to the pharmacy, then drop off the dispensed medication at the door in order to minimise contact.
