    The B.C. government on Tuesday introduced legislation that will bring in three days of paid sick leave related to COVID-19 such as having symptoms, self-isolating, and waiting for a test result.

    Employers will be required to pay workers their full wages and the B.C. government will reimburse employers without an existing sick leave program up to $200 per day for each worker.

    “The best way to protect workers, their families and co-workers during this pandemic is to have a paid sick leave program in place,” Premier John Horgan said.

    The federal government launched a program last year to support workers required to miss work due to COVID-19, but critics have pointed out the plan has significant gaps.
