Miami-Dade approves 80 hours of paid sick leave for COVID-19 recovering



Miami, Florida – According to Miami-Dade County officials, employees who contract COVID-19 now have 80 hours of paid sick leave to recover.

Earlier this week, Vice Chairman Oliver G. Gilbert, led the effort to get the sick leave approved by the county’s board.

“This legislation will give our employees the opportunity to care for themselves and their loved ones without using their paid time off for Covid related matters,” said Gilbert.

According to Gilbert, the COVID-19 sick time will allow employees to rest, obtain the proper health care, and have the ability to recover and return safely to their workplace.
