Dr. Jody Heymann -- founding director of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health’s WORLD Policy Analysis Center and a distinguished professor of public health, public policy, and medicine at UCLA -- co-authored an opinion piece published by CNN.com about the role that paid sick leave could play in reducing the spread of COVID-19. “Paid sick leave is the only way all workers in America can afford to stay home when they are sick and not spread the novel coronavirus to others,” Heymann and her co-author, Brigid Schulte, a former Washington Post staff writer, wrote. “The costs of not providing paid sick leave are what we can't afford. Workers without paid sick leave are 1.5 times more likely to go to work when ill, reducing productivity and spreading disease.”
