Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
People on low incomes needing to apply for the NHS Test and Trace Self-Isolation Support Payment in Haringey can now do so on our website.
If you have been told to self-isolate by Covid-19 NHS Test and Trace and are losing pay because you cannot work, you may be able to claim up to £500.
The government scheme applies to those on low incomes who meet certain criteria.
From September 28 new laws were brought in setting out what you must do if you are told to self-isolate, and the fines you could face if you do not follow the rules.
Find out more about the payments, who can claim, and how to apply, on our dedicated support payment page.
Employees who work for UK firms forced to close by law, because of Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, are to get two-thirds of their wages paid by the government as part of a new scheme announced today by Chancellor, Rishi Sunak.
The scheme will begin on 1 November and run for six months, with a review in January.
Until November businesses that are asked to close can continue to use the furlough scheme. The grants will be paid up to a maximum of £2,100 per employee a month.
Additionally, for businesses forced to close in England, there will be an increase in business grants - with up to £3,000 a month paid every fortnight.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Haringey, like all councils, has had to continue to bill and collect the income that it is due to receive.
This must be done in order to fulfil the council’s statutory obligations and, most importantly, provide the funding for the crucial services that it delivers and that Haringey residents rely upon, both during this crisis and normal times.
Of course, these are not normal times and since April we have adjusted our approach to take into account special circumstances, while still being clear where debts are owed to the council.
In line with government guidance, we have resumed our normal procedures. These will be applied ethically and responsibly and we will continue to recognise the specific circumstances of individuals, families, businesses and other organisations.
We would continue to advise Haringey residents to liaise with us in order to help manage their payment of any debts – engagement is an important part of our relationship with our residents and businesses.
