Does workers' compensation cover coronavirus?
from By Grace Ferguson
Though we still have much to learn about the novel coronavirus, symptoms range from mild to severe and can lead to death. In response, lawmakers and industry leaders have been implementing relief for impacted individuals — such as paid leave, additional unemployment benefits, and free testing. A common question among employees is whether relief extends to workers' compensation. Long story short, if you're exposed to COVID-19 on the job, you might have a hard time getting workers' compensation — unless you're a healthcare provider or first responder.
