The government funding to support providers with paying staff whilst they self-isolate ended on 31st March 2022.

Hertfordshire County Council made a decision to cover an extension of this funding for providers for the month of April 2022, to help providers with those costs during that extra month only.

This funding has now unfortunately come to an end. Therefore, HCC have cited that providers will be expected to cover this internally from now on.

As well as the COVID-19 symptoms guidance, these are the current guidelines for Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) relating to this from ACAS that may be useful to you:

If you have any further funding queries relating to issues within your care organisation individually and are contracting with HCC, please contact your Monitoring Officer directly to discuss.
