Government and health officials urge Pennsylvanians that feel sick to stay home.
For the many Pennsylvanians without paid sick leave, it can be a huge financial burden.
Representative Maria Donatucci has introduced House Bill 169. It would require all Pennsylvania workers be given the opportunity to earn paid sick leave.
A similar bill has been introduced in the Senate.
Both the House and Senate bills are currently in their respective labor and industry committees.
