Self-isolating in England
You must self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19 or if you are unvaccinated and have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
You may be entitled to a one-off payment of £500 through the NHS Test and Trace Support Payment scheme if you are legally required to stay at home and self-isolate or you are the parent or guardian of a child who has been told to self-isolate.
