Workers' Compensation and COVID-19
If you’re wondering if workers' compensation covers COVID-19, the answer is complicated. Typically, workers’ compensation does not cover routine community-spread illnesses like a cold or the flu because they cannot be directly tied to the workplace. However, during the coronavirus pandemic, some states have made exceptions for certain workers who develop chronic illnesses, such as cancer, resulting from repeated exposure to harmful materials and environments.
