So I saw this article where Florida firefighters (who also run EMS) are being denied Workers’ Comp if they are infected with COVID, and if they do not have enough PTO on the books, they simply go without pay for the two week isolation period. Why? Their boss says that there is no evidence that they got COVID while at work.
So the answer to this, is if you test positive, keep your mouth shut, keep going to work, and don’t tell anyone. Hang out in the chief’s office. Cough on his coffee cup and computer keyboard. When he gets COVID, see how quickly workers’ comp is approved.
