COVID-19 and Public Health: Take Action

As more people are being diagnosed with COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our area, and as our schools and businesses begin to make plans for people to remain home to slow the spread of the disease, it's important to remember the role that paid sick days and paid family leave can play during a public health emergency.

Workers needs paid sick days in the best of times, but when there are issues of public health, that time is needed more than ever. The same is true of paid family and medical leave, in order to be sure that people who need more time to recover - and their caregivers - can do so without risking their jobs.

After you follow CDC recommendations for handwashing and other safety measures, here are some steps you can take to help everyone access the time they need.
