More than 1.2 million Virginians are forced to make the impossible decision between their job and their health because they do not have access to paid sick days.  Especially in the aftermath of COVID-19, it has become more critical than ever to ensure that when Virginians are sick, they can recover without worrying about losing their job.  Paid sick days provide critical economic security to families and small businesses, helping them attract and retain the best talent, and giving guidance to business owners on how to keep their workplaces and customers safe.
