IF you face financial difficulty as a result of an instruction to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, you may be able to apply for a payment to help you.
Test and Trace Support Payment
People across England are now required by law to self-isolate if they are asked to do so by NHS Test and Trace, either because they have tested positive or they have been identified as a contact. Failure to comply with these requirements, including employers who do not allow employees to self-isolate, may result in a fine of at least £1,000 and up to £10,000 for repeated or serious offences. These regulations only apply in England.
