PAYMENTS will be provided to those unable to work from home who have been told to self-isolate through NHS test and trace.
Warwick District Council will be providing £500 payments to those who meet the eligibility criteria and have been told to self-isolate because they have tested positive for coronavirus or have been in contact with someone who has.
Applicants must show they have been told to self isolate by test and trace, are employed or self-employed, are unable to work from home and are currently receiving benefits.
Council business and finance spokesman coun Richard Hales said: “These payments are not only a vital financial lifeline to those who are self-isolating, but will help to stop the spread of the virus amongst our community, prevent local lock-downs and more importantly save lives.”
Applications must be made as soon as possible but no later than two weeks after self-isolation has ended.
