Pilot scheme to offer alternative accommodation for self-isolation

New pilot schemes are being launched across England in a bid to encourage people to get tested for Covid-19 and follow self-isolation rules. The pilots will involve increased social care support for vulnerable adults, “buddying” services for people needing mental health support and translation assistance for non-English speakers. People isolating in overcrowded houses in the trial areas will also be offered alternative accommodation.
