REPORT EMPLOYERS FORCING SICK WORKERS TO WORK TO PALM BEACH COUNTY
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Dr. Alino Alonso, Health Department Director for Palm Beach County, just said in an afternoon news conference that Palm Beach County must again flatten the curve.
“We need everybody’s help to flatten the curve. We’re going to use the weapon we had in the beginning. Facial coverings. Social distancing. Washing your hands. Sanitizing your hands when you can, not just washing them.”
Suggesting that the county is aware of employers encouraging sick workers to still work, she strongly sent this message:
“I want to lean on the businesses and employers. It is important to tell your employees home when they are sick. Give them an incentive to stay home when they are sick.”
Anyone with information about employers forcing sick employees to work should telephone the COVID-19 action line in Palm Beach County: 561-24-COVID.
