Leicester Lockdown and Corona Virus updates:
New measures and support for self-isolation
From 28th September, anyone who receives a positive Covid-19 test or is told to self-isolate by the NHS Test & Trace Service is required to do so by law, with fines starting at £1,000 and increasing to £10,000 for multiple or severe breaches.
Adults on a low income asked to self-isolate from this date, who are unable to work from home and face a loss of income, may be entitled to a new £500 payment. This is claimed from the Council online.
From Monday 28th September anyone who thinks they may be entitled to claim can tell us they intend to claim by completing the intention to claim form on the Council website and find out how to get help for those unable to make an online claim. We will contact them as soon as the claim process is available to complete and backdate their application.
More information will be provided when further government guidance has been issued. Further updates and information can be found at: https://www.leicester.gov.uk/your-council/coronavirus/council-tax-and-financial-support/test-and-trace-support-payment/
