Employees in titles represented by unions that have collectively bargained an agreement to opt into New York State Paid Family Leave Benefits will be eligible to take paid family leave (“PFL”). PFL is an employee-funded insurance policy that provides job-protected, paid time-off to bond with a newly born, adopted or fostered child, to care for a family member with a serious health condition including preparation and recovery from surgery related to organ or tissue donation, or to assist loved ones when a family member is deployed in a foreign country on active military service.

There is a new Coronavirus strain that cause respiratory illnesses and can be transmitted from person to person. The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) strain was discovered and identified in Wuhan, China during an investigation in an outbreak of respiratory illnesses.

This COVID-19 strain can cause lower respiratory tract illness such as bronchitis or pneumonia. People with pre-existing medical conditions, weakened immune systems and the elderly may be more susceptible to complications from this virus.
