Ashby Votes for Employment Protections For Quarantined New Yorkers

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I,Ref-Castleton)

“It is evident that the coronavirus outbreak is going to make things very difficult for New Yorkers. Today we provided protections for anyone who is in mandatory and precautionary quarantine for COVID-19. They cannot lose their jobs, will have access to sick leave and family leave. Moving forward in the coming days, the Legislature must look at ways to provide relief and a plan for recovery for our many small businesses who are being hurt during this time. I am committed to do what we must to give our residents and the economy the support needed to recover.”
