Coronavirus – assessing your risk

7th April 2020

Good morning

Here is a very useful message from Versus Arthritis the new charity formed from the two charities Arthritis Research UK and Artthritis Care joining together.

The ‘Assess your risk’ section could help those of you who are concerned about the level of risk COVID-19 poses for you.

Best wishes

Stay safe and follow Government guidelines

This is our second coronavirus update providing you with the latest information, as we continue to stand by, support and speak up for people living with arthritis.

Assessing your risk

Many of you have been asking whether you need to shield or self-isolate, if you or a loved one has arthritis. Working with the British Society of Rheumatology, NHS England and Public Health England we’ve created a calculator to help you.


We’ll continue working with the NHS, health professional organisations and charities to provide trusted and timely content for you. Please keep checking our updated information on coronavirus
