FINANCIAL SUPPORT for people who test positive with Covid-19:

We know that the financial impact on local people is worrying, but there is support available.  Because anyone who tests positive for Covid has to legally isolate, as do their close contacts, we know that this can cause financial problems if they are unable to work.  Support is available for this – payments of £500 are available to support eligible people who would struggle financially to self-isolate. There is a national scheme and a Middlesbrough Council scheme running to support this, with slightly different criteria.  You can find out more by clicking on the link here which takes you to the Council webpage explaining this and who is eligible.
