They are entitled to SSP (if they are eligible) for the first 14 days of self-isolation – anything after that 14 day period needs a sick note/isolation note to cover it and enable them to claim SSP. They can obtain an isolation note here:  https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/

Your Personal Assistant (PA) will only be eligible to received SSP if they earn over £118 per week. If your PA hours vary – work out an average of their pay over the last 12 weeks – if this is £118 or over, they are eligible for SSP.
