Laid Off Due to COVID-19? There May Be Relief

You can receive state assistance if you meet the following criteria:

  • You were laid off for an extended period of time without pay due to COVID-19.
  • You are quarantined by a medical professional or government agency.
  • You are caring for an immediate family member diagnosed with COVID-19.
