From the Abstract: "The UK National Health Service (NHS) classified 2.2 million people as clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) during the first wave of the 2020 COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, advising them to 'shield' (to not leave home for any reason). [...] The aim of this study was to measure the determinants of shielding behavior and associations with well-being in a large NHS patient population for informing future health policy."
