The scheme is available to employees or self-employed people who are unable to work due to:
a diagnosis of COVID-19
an instruction by a doctor or the HSE to self-isolate or restrict their movements
The payment is €350 per week. To apply, a person will require medical certification.
As part of this campaign we have developed a series of multi-lingual resources including posters and social media posts in 16 languages. These are designed to help ensure that as many people as possible are made aware of this important support. The resources are available to download below.
