Governor Signs Legislation Offering to Supplemental Paid Sick Leave for Workers Impacted by the Pandemic

Late last week, Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 95, creating a statewide policy to ensure employees have access to COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave through September 30, 2021.  Under the legislation, eligible employees can access up to 80 hours of paid sick leave, including those advised to quarantine or isolate and those caring for COVID-impacted family members.

SB 95 extends protections through September 30, 2021 and is retroactive to sick leave taken beginning January 1, 2021. Small businesses employing 25 or fewer workers are exempt from the legislation, but may offer supplemental paid sick leave and, if eligible, receive a federal tax credit.

The website is now available in Armenian, Japanese, Khmer, Punjabi, Russian, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, and English.

While most the Marin-based vaccine providers are not yet reflected on MyTurn.ca.gov, many will be moving into the statewide appointment system beginning in April. Any resident who is not yet eligible to be vaccinated but plans to seek a vaccine is encouraged to sign-up with MyTurn and be notified when they become eligible to be connected with available appointments.
