The Coronavirus: Workers’ Compensation and the Workplace
White Paper Summary
The short answer is that influenza or other infectious diseases are not typically covered or accepted under a workers’ compensation claim, with many states specifically excluding disease from a workers’ compensation policy.

Typically, the onset of symptoms or infections won’t materialize right away, but rather after the initial contact at the workplace. This could be anywhere from a few days to a week or longer.
