Test and Isolate Payments Available

- 19 Aug 2021

The NSW Government recently announced the Test and Isolate support payment for eligible casual workers who need to self-isolate and are unable to work while waiting for their COVID-19 test result.

The $320 payment is to encourage workers to get tested immediately if they are feeling unwell, even with mild symptoms, and to isolate at home and avoid potential COVID-19 transmission.

To be eligible, workers must be:

• 17 years or older and live in one of the local government areas of concern

• working without sick/carer/pandemic leave entitlements, and not receiving or eligible for any other income support including a pandemic payment.

Applications are now open to workers who had a COVID-19 test on or after 13 August 2021.

Apply through Service NSW.
