The first mistake people make after contracting Covid-19 at work is that they don’t file a workers’ compensation claim. If a person contracts Covid-19 they should file a claim immediately, it is a rapidly changing area of law and claimants may have as little as 1 year from the date they contracted Covid-19. Filing a claim doesn’t mean that you will get money, it just means that your rights will be protected.
Number two is not getting tested. You are going to need positive test results to prove your claim. Thinking you’ve had Covid-19 is not enough to support your claim. The testing situation is fluid and there have been many false negatives. It is important that you are able to produce a positive test result to support your claim.
