  1. UK citizens now have an affirmative legal duty to self-isolate upon a positive covid19 test.


    Failure to comply is punishable by Up To £1000 fine or Up To £10K for repeat offenders.

      This gives me a few questions:


      1. what if they’re homeless? How are they supposed to self-isolate? Because 500 pounds isn’t gonna get me a hotel for the usual two-week quarantine.


      2. How long do you need to isolate? A day? A week? A month?


      3. Is the test mandatory? If so, this de-incentivizes people who may be just trying to make ends meet from getting tested. Actually this is worse because gives people who are low income the incentive to infect themselves.


      4. How do you enforce this? What if I just walk to a store to buy groceries? What if I don’t have any groceries? How am I supposed to buy more?


      And one comment:


      This system could potentially be gamed. Say you are just about to be evicted. You could purposefully give yourself COVID, get tested, then your landlord could not evict you.


      I don’t know what your government is trying to do. They are giving incentives to people who have higher income to avoid getting tested. And they are giving incentives to people who are low income to purposefully infect themselves for free money.

      @CircleTech For number 2) I believe 7-10 days. If not then 14.


      3) No. If you don’t choose to get tested then you don’t need to worry about this.
