Cuomo: NY employees who travel to COVID hot spots ineligible for paid sick leave

Cuomo in mid-March announced guaranteed job protection and extended paid-sick leave benefits for all employed New Yorkers who were forced to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Cuomo signed the order Friday saying that he wanted to maintain New York's progress battling the pandemic.

"New Yorkers have controlled the spread of this unprecedented virus by being smart and disciplined, and our progress to date is illustrated by the current low numbers of new cases and hospitalizations", Governor Cuomo said.

Phil Murphy, and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont all recently issued quarantine orders for travelers from states that have seen recent spikes in coronavirus cases.

Cuomo, appearing on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday, said the state is still waiting to make a decision on whether schools will reopen in the fall.

The US is the worst-hit country by the pandemic with more than 2.5 million cases and almost 126,000 fatalities.

Under the plan, with 100 or more employees are required to provide at least 14 days of paid sick leave and guarantee job protection for the duration of the state's quarantine order.

How did NY do it?

More than 90 percent of state and local government workers receive paid sick leave, even among the lowest wage-earners.

The announcement from the governor's office comes after officials say someone who recently traveled to Florida attended a graduation ceremony in Westchester County and began showing symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19.

All but two regions of the state reported a decline in the share of positive cases out of those tested Saturday.

The order comes after Cuomo, along with the governors of New Jersey and CT, announced last week they're requiring travelers from states with "significant community spread" of the virus to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in one of their three states.

New York, at one time the epicenter of the outbreak of the virus, has more than 397,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Cuomo also previously issued an order to stop visitors from states where new coronavirus infections are surging. He says a lack of compliance with social distancing is mostly to blame.
