We show that Shelah cardinals are preserved under the canonical
GCH forcing notion. We also show that if
GCH holds and
F:REGÅºCARD is an Easton function which satisfies some weak properties, then there exists a cofinality preserving generic extension of the universe which preserves Shelah cardinals and satisfies
ÅºÅºÅºREG,2Åº=F(Åº). This gives a partial answer to a question asked by Cody (Arch Math Logic 52(56):569591, 2013) and independently by Honzik (Acta Univ Carol 1:5572, 2015). We also prove an indestructibility result for Shelah cardinals.
