On March 26, 2020, the Colorado Department of Labor revised its emergency rule requiring paid sick leave to employees who may be impacted by COVID-19. “Retail establishments that sell groceries” have been added to the types of business that must provide this leave to their employees. Additionally, employees who are eligible to receive this paid sick leave include individuals who are under instructions from a healthcare provider to quarantine or isolate due to a risk of having COVID-19. As originally written, only employees who were being tested for COVID-19 were eligible.
