Issue details

Covid-19 Isolation Payment Policy

Purpose of Report: The Government as part of its latest package of controls to minimise the spread of covid-19 has introduced a new isolation payment for those on low income or self-employed who are unable to work from home. The policy also has an discretionary element and this paper will present the councils policy for making the payments.

 

The Executive Member will be asked to approve the policy for making payments.
