Self-isolate when told – or be fined up to £10,000

0 comment

Fines of up to £10,000 will be imposed on those who are meant to self-isolate if they leave their homes under new rules. The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has announced a new legal duty for people to self-isolate either if they test positive or if they are told to do so by Test and Trace staff.

These fines for those breaching the rules, which come into effect from Monday 28th September, will start at £1,000 – rising to £10,000 for repeat offenders and the most egregious breaches. Business owners who threaten self-isolating staff with redundancy if they do not come to work can also be fined.

To help out, four million people on low incomes who cannot work from home will receive a £500 lump sum if forced to self-isolate.
