Worker support payments for those affected by COVID-19

The Victorian Government is providing one-off payments to financially support Victorian workers, including parents and guardians, who are required to self-isolate or quarantine due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Payments available:

  • A one-off $300 payment to support Victorian workers, including parents and guardians, who are required to self-isolate while you wait for the results of your coronavirus (COVID-19) test.
  • A one-off $1500 payment to support Victorian workers who have been instructed by DHHS to self-isolate or quarantine at home because they or their child are either diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19) or are a close contact of a confirmed case.

Workers include those that are permanent, casual, part-time, fixed term, and self-employed.
