The Ontario government is extending its paid sick leave program to March 31, 2023 to ensure employees don’t lose pay if they miss work due to a coronavirus infection.

Eligible workers will continue to receive up to $200 a day for a maximum of three days if they need to get tested, vaccinated, receive booster shots, self-isolate or care for an ill family member. The government will continue to reimburse eligible employers for the paid leave days.
