Hi,

You both are certainly vulnerable and at an increased risk of complications if you get COVID 19 infection.

Since your husband has just had a heart attack, you should ask his doctor to provide a note for self - isolation.

We cannot provide an official note, though if needed we can give a simple note in the chat box suggesting that you are Vulnerable.

Please let us know how to proceed?
Warm regards
