People with large families can isolate themselves in hotels for free under new government plans to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
NHS Test and Trace is reportedly asking municipalities for ways they can implement the plan and make it more attractive to households.
The idea was raised during the first lockdown in Leicester to try to stop the virus from spreading, but it was detested by the targets.
Officials would fear that large families will struggle to keep Covid-19 in their homes, as many work in jobs that require the home.
Some are also reportedly less likely to be tested, and if they test positive, it is more difficult to contain the virus.

A source told the Times: ‘Hotels have not worked so far because the families you have to attract are nervous about it.’
They added that the goal would be ‘better communication and support’.
Figures released yesterday from the Bureau of National Statistics showed that the infections were leveling off.
It found that just over a fifth – 21 percent – of people who share a home with others can isolate individually.
Head of NHS Test and Trace Baroness Harding told counsel this week for those living in multi-generational households that “self-isolation is just physically impossible.”
She said, “households where maybe eight or ten people work, all of whom are afraid of losing their jobs, which means no one comes forward.”
Any large family hotel quarantine system has yet to be disclosed, and official details have yet to be released.
Obviously, it will be different from the mandatory self-isolation for passengers traveling from Red List countries as it will be voluntary and funded by the state.
About three in twenty adults in England who tested positive for coronavirus while isolating themselves did not fully meet legal requirements.
About 14 percent said they had performed at least one activity during their self-isolation period that didn’t comply with the rules, the RVS said.
Failure to comply with self-isolation requirements is illegal unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as urgent medical reasons.
About one in five – 22 percent – adults who broke the rules said they had at least one visitor in their home during the self-isolation period, where the visit was not intended to support personal care.
More than four in five – 83 percent – of those who didn’t follow the rules said they had left home for an unauthorized reason, such as going to the store, to work, or to school.
The Office for National Statistics predicted that Covid cases had ‘leveled off’ last week. It said there could be 162,500 in England, which was a 1.5 percent increase from the 160,200 recorded last week
The RVS analyzed the responses of adults who tested positive for coronavirus and who were at the end of their 10-day self-isolation period.
Overall, 86 percent of respondents reported fully adhering to self-isolation requirements, according to data collected Feb.1-13.
The ONS said non-compliant behavior was most likely to occur between the onset of symptoms and obtaining a test result.
Half of the respondents received their test result within 24 hours and 10% waited more than 72 hours.
About 98 percent reported complying with the requirements in the 24 hours after a positive test and 94 percent between this point and the end of the 10-day self-isolation period.
More than one in three adults felt that self-isolation had a negative effect on their well-being and mental health.
About 37 percent of adults said self-isolation had a negative effect, while 58 percent reported no effect.
When the Public Health England figures were broken down by age, they showed that cases only tick among the five to 19 age groups, but were still declining for all other age groups. They fell fastest in the over-70s who are least at risk from the virus
About a third – 32 percent – reported an income loss, while 13 percent of those who worked before self-isolation – both inside and outside their homes – said they were not paid during the self-isolation period.
Tim Gibbs, of the ONS public services analysis team, said: “Although it is a legal obligation, self-isolation interferes with everyday life and we can see that there are significant side effects of self-isolation, such as deterioration in mental health. and loss of income.
‘Nevertheless, our analysis shows that a majority of people indicate that they fully adhere to the rules during their period of self-isolation.
“This behavior is essential to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and keep people safe.”
Among adults who had to isolate themselves after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19, about a third (32 percent) said self-isolation had a negative effect on their well-being and mental health, while 28 percent said they lost income.
A majority (90 percent) of those who had to isolate themselves after coming into contact with a positive cause said they followed the self-isolation rules for the full 10-day period.
Of those who said they had not followed the rules, a third (33 percent) had allowed at least one visitor into their home, while 22 percent said they had left home for a medical reason other than receiving or returning from a Covid-19 test.
These figures, which are also compiled by the ONS, are based on responses collected from adults in England from March 1 to 6.
