The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) has issued an update for workers who are medically required to self-isolate or have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Where an employee or a self-employed person is medically required to self-isolate or has been diagnosed with COVID-19 they can apply for the enhanced Illness Benefit payment. In the interests of public health, this payment will only be paid where individuals remain confined to their home or a medical facility while in receipt of this enhanced Illness Benefit.
