Governor Newsom has announced the issuance fo Executive Order No. N-62-20 establishing a rebuttable presumption creating a temporary workers' compensation presumption for employees diagnosed with COVID-19. Those eligible will have the rebuttable presumption if they tested positive for COVID-19 or were diagnosed with COVID-19 and confirmed by a positive test within 14 days of performing a labor or service at a place of work after the stay at home order was issued on March 19, 2020. The presumption will stay in place for 60 days after issuance of the executive order.
