Earlier this afternoon during his daily COVID-19 briefing, Gov. J.B. Pritzker was asked how what employees should possibly do if they’re threatened with their jobs who have recently come back with COVID-19 and don’t want to spread the virus, but an employer demands they return to work immediately.

“They should report their companies, because we won’t stand for it,” Governor Pritzker said on Saturday, “Companies that are demanding that sick people return to work, at this moment in our history, at this moment while we’re fighting COVID-19, those companies should be reported.”

Employees who are concerned that their employer is pushing them back into Illinois’ workplace at too soon of a date after coming down with COVID-19 can call the Illinois Department of Public Health Central Complaint Registry Hotline at 800-252-4343.

U.S. reports this afternoon over 300,000 COVID-19 victims with over 8,000 dead from COVID-19.
