Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment Reinstated


A decision has been made by the National Cabinet to reinstate the emergency COVID-19 Pandemic Leave Disaster Payments until 30 September 2022.

The payment of $750 has now been reinstated, with eligibility being that:

  • If you test positive and have to isolate for seven days, if in that seven day period, you lose more than eight hours of work or a full day’s work.
  • If you have sick leave, you must use your sick leave first before being eligible.
  • If you have more than $10,000 in the bank you are not eligible.

The payment is available to people who need to stay home and care for a person with COVID-19, including children under 16 or a person with a disability, as well as close contacts.

The payments will be shared 50-50 between the Commonwealth and the states and territories

National cabinet will continue to meet every two to three weeks until the end of September, with health experts expecting the current wave to peak in mid-August.
