Restaurant employees sickened by COVID-19 may be entitled to 10 days of paid leave, under an emergency relief bill that was signed into law last night, by President Trump. The aid will be required of all employers with 50 - 500 people on their payroll. Businesses with 50 or fewer employees can request a waiver. Though they will be tasked with proving that the economic impact of COVID-19 poses a critical threat to their continued operation.
