COVID-19 – Shielding Impact and Experience Survey in Scotland

A survey capturing the views and experiences of people who are shielding and their carers by Public Health Scotland will close on Sunday.

The survey is targeted at people who have received a letter from Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer advising them to shield or for carers to complete on their behalf.

The survey covers questions around attitudes and beliefs around shielding, shielding behaviour, the support people are receiving and the impacts that shielding is having on people’s lives.

The survey forms part of an evaluation of the shielding programme, which the Scottish Government have asked Public Health Scotland to undertake. It will also inform next steps as the programme develops.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and can be found at the following link: surveys.publichealthscotland.scot/shielding
