Local Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has welcomed increased money to support people who are self-isolating.

 

Coronavirus Covid19 Newry 57

 

The announcement was made this week by Communities Minister Carál Ní Chuilín.

 

 

The Newry/Armagh MLA said, “Today’s boost in the self-isolation grant is welcome news, particularly for those on low incomes who are facing a reduction in their pay.

“The daily allowance will be increased and there will be increased flexibility for awards to be paid over longer periods.

 

 

“The enhancement of this grant allows for the continuation of vital support to people who have tested positive with Covid-19 or are forced to isolate.

“It’s vital that workers and families receive support and when they need it,” the local MLA added.
