- Employers of 11 to 99 employees to provide five days of paid sick leave
In addition, there is a new paid sick leave requirement in the act.

This Act now allows an eligible employee to take paid sick leave because the employee is:

- 2. Advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine due to COVID-19 concerns
- 3. Experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and seeking medical diagnosis
- Caring for an individual subject to a federal, state or local quarantine or isolation order or advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine due to COVID-19 concerns
- Caring for the employee’s child if the child’s school or place of care is closed or the child’s care provider is unavailable due to public health emergency; or
- Experiencing any other substantially similar condition specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Labor.
Note: caring for another who is subject to an isolation order or advised to self-quarantine as described above is no longer limited to just family members.
