Does FMLA apply if I contract COVID-19? Does FMLA apply if my spouse or child contracts COVID-19, and I must stay home to care for them?
An employee who is sick may be entitled to leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in certain circumstances. Some instances of COVID-19 may qualify as a “serious health condition.”
FMLA definition, information and resources are available at the Purdue FMLA page.
You may also qualify for paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (see above question for details)
