    Isn't this what part of the holdup is with the next Covid relief bill? Didn't McConnell want companies to be exempt from lawsuits over exposure to the virus?

    My company gives you 2 weeks PTO (paid by the company) if you test positive, a family member test +, or you come into contact with somebody outside your home that was known to have tested +. A co-worker of mine has been out 3 different times. All company paid. Perhaps they are doing it like this to avoid lawsuits down the road. Their current method being cheaper and less time-consuming.
