National Paid Sick Leave - COVID19

749 so far! Let’s get to 1,000 signers!

I urge you to fully support and immediately work to pass national paid sick leave legislation, such as H.R. 6150 / S. 3415: "A bill to allow Americans to earn paid sick time so that they can address their own health needs and the health needs of their families." The entire United States is in the midst of an official Public Health Emergency (PHE), as declared by Secretary of Health & Human Service Alex Azar in January of 2020, due to the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. According to an official Health Update issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on March 8, 2020, people who are mildly ill with COVID-19 (the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2) should stay home in order to avoid transmitting the illness to others. But for many Americans without paid sick leave, staying home is not financially possible. H.R. 6150 / S. 3415 would provide Americans with an immediate 14 days of paid sick leave during this public health emergency so that they can protect themselves, their families, and their communities.
