Having universal paid sick days for the flu can greatly reduce transmission
Having universal paid sick days for the flu can greatly reduce transmission (June 14, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Pittsburgh - Having universal paid sick leave can greatly limit transmission of the flu, according to a report published in the American Journal of Public Health. Researchers simulated an influenza epidemic in Pittsburgh, allowing employees to have 'flu days'--one or two paid days off in which they could recover from the flu. Results showed that giving employees just one flu day reduced transmission of influenza in the workplace by 25%. Having two flu-days reduced transmission by nearly 40%.
