Coronavirus (COVID-19) Test Isolation and Worker Support Payments

The Department of Health and Human Services is providing a one-off $1,500 payment designed to financially support Victorian workers who, as of 20 June, have been instructed by the department to self-isolate or quarantine at home because they are either diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19) or are a close contact of a confirmed case.

The COVID-19 worker support payment recognises that the requirement to self-isolate or quarantine at home can cause a financial burden for some individuals and families who are without incomes during this period. 

Providing financial support can help alleviate this burden, making it easier for people to comply with the direction to stay at home.
