Liverpool City Council are asking accommodation providers to support people to self-isolate and are providing additional funding for providers to make life more comfortable for these people by buying TV’s or other items, when necessary, and providing food.
When people do not self-isolate, we are asking providers to assertively encourage them to do so, explaining the importance of the situation and the risks associated with a failure to self-isolate. If service users continue to fail to follow this guidance, we are escalating these issues to Public Health England.
We have had reports of some people gathering in the city centre, not practicing social distancing and being abusive to outreach workers and the Police. We urge you to encourage service users to stay in, and if they have to go out, only go out for one of the essential reasons as set out by Government, and to be courteous to anyone they come across.
