It has been reported that an increasingly large number of people are told to self-isolate, most commonly instructed to do so by the NHS app. ‘Pingdemic’ is upon us, apparently.

HMRC clarified that it will not reject a claim for furlough grant where the reason for furlough claim was mandatory self-isolation, including when coming to the UK from an amber/red list countries.

It must be stressed though that this clarification only suggests a claim based on mandatory self-isolation will not be rejected. There is no obligation on the employee to put on furlough staff in self-isolation and other options may be considered. An SSP claim may be more suitable, for example.
