The new policy, named the Families First Response Act Policy (FFRAP), allows for certain eligible employees to take paid time off in order to protect themselves, as well as care for others. Signed by the President, the policy allows for a period of sick time to be used following symptoms of COVID-19, as well as a period of time for employees to employ the benefits if they’re at home with childcare needs. The City of Chicago has also extended libraries’ SitterCity benefits, meaning that staff can access up to three months of free premium services through SitterCity.
