Test and Trace Self Isolation Support Payments

Published on Monday, 12th October 2020

North Warwickshire Borough Council will be providing Self Isolation Payment support to local residents who need financial assistance due to having to self-isolate because of Coronavirus.

The UK government announced there is now a new legal duty on all UK residents to self-isolate if they test positive for COVID-19 or are identified by the NHS Test and Trace as a close contact of someone who has done so.

As this new legal duty may impact your ability to work and earn a living, the government has introduced a grant scheme, which will run until 31 January 2021.

People who have received notification from NHS Test, Track and Trace from 28 September 2020 with a unique 8-digit identifier number and are eligible under the scheme criteria will receive a payment.
