NICE guidance states that on admission to hospital, all adults should be assessed for frailty, irrespective of COVID‑19 status. The Clinical Frailty Scale should not be used in younger people, people with stable long-term disabilities (for example, cerebral palsy), learning disabilities or autism. An individualised assessment is recommended in all cases where the CFS is not appropriate.

Coronavirus and Cerebral Palsy – Managing Anxiety23/03/2020
We know lots of people in our community are worried about Cerebral Palsy and COVID-19. Our priority remains supporting adults living with Cerebral Palsy.
There are a lot of questions we all have about the next few weeks which none of us can answer. This is creating a lot of Anxiety for many people, so we thought we would take the bull by the horns and get to understand anxiety a bit more so we could possibly recognise it in ourselves or our families and have some techniques in our tool box to try out.
