The Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) announced a new program to help people who work in Oregon and need to quarantine or isolate due to COVID-19 exposure, but do not have access to COVID-19-related paid sick leave. People who qualify will receive a $120 per-day payment for up to 10 working days ($1,200 total) for the time they are required to quarantine.
Employees can apply online at oregon.gov/covidpaidleave
The application form is available in English, Spanish, and Russian. Those who do not have access to electronic applications can call 833-685-0850 (toll-free) or 503-947-0130.
Those who need help in a language other than these three can call 503-947-0131 for help.
