You may be able to obtain workers’ compensation benefits based upon a claim of COVID. However, as with all claims, it must be proven that COVID was contracted within the scope of your employment.
Unlike physical injuries which may be more easily proven, COVID may be difficult to establish since the virus can theoretically be contracted anywhere.
There has also been recent legislation which provides business owners with some immunity from COVID claims.
Absent a finding that the business acted recklessly in taking measures to prevent and minimize COVID within the work place, it may be difficult to establish this prerequisite.
