RCOG updates its guidance on pregnant women returning to work amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG) has updated its guidance on coronavirus (COVID-19) and pregnancy. The RCOG has published advice for pregnant women going to work following the changes to shielding guidance alongside advice to those returning to work who are pregnant and have been vaccinated. The RCOG has published that despite government changes to shielding advice on 1 April 2021, pregnant women have never been told to shield unless they have underlying conditions. The RCOG has also highlighted that following the government's guidance for pregnant employees, employers are still required to undertake a risk assessment whether or not an employee has been vaccinated.
