Welsh Government has today announced two schemes for providing financial support to people who are asked to self-isolate.

The first scheme will be available to people on a low income who are unable to work from home and would lose income as a result of self-isolating.

To be eligible, people must be self-isolating and in receipt of Universal Credit or another specified benefit.

There’s also a statutory sick pay enhancement scheme for social care staff working in care homes, domiciliary care and as personal assistants.

In the light of the announcement, the council will work with Welsh Government on the detail of the arrangements and will share these as soon as they’re finalised.

In the meantime, please note that there’s no need to contact the council.

Stay safe.
