- 100% for an individual subject to a quarantine related to COVID-19, up to $511 daily and $5,110 total
- 2/3 for caring for an individual who is subject to quarantine due to COVID-19, or is in self-quarantine recommended by a healthcare provider, up to $200 daily and $2,000 total
- Up to 10 weeks more of paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave paid at 2/3 for caring for a child whose school is closed due to COVID-19, up to $200 daily and $12,000 total.
