Published 27th Aug 2020 by Emma Sinfield

Commenting on the government’s announcement that people on low incomes in Coronavirus hotspots in England will be able to claim up to £182 if they have to self-isolate,

BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:

We’ve called for additional income support for those required to self-isolate for some time. Businesses will want this trial to be expanded quickly across England and throughout the UK, increasing the rate of pay if necessary, to ensure compliance with the requirement to self-isolate and in turn reduce the spread of the virus.

Ministers must also act to support the many businesses that, through no fault of their own, have been force to close or seen substantial loss of income due to localised lockdowns or restrictions.”
