Ashby Votes for Employment Protections For Quarantined New Yorkers

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I,Ref-Castleton)
March 18, 2020

“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.”
