Updates from the County of Santa Clara and State of California  

  • Today, Governor Newsom announced assistance for people who grow, pick, pack, cook, serve, sell, and deliver food in the state. Noting that “that sector has been particularly hard hit” across the nation, the Governor signed an executive order allowing for two weeks of supplemental sick leave for workers that have contracted COVID-19, been exposed to the coronavirus, or been required to quarantine or isolate by officials. Many of these workers have not been covered by federal relief that had provided similar paid leave benefits for employers with fewer than 500 workers.
