Oregon COVID-19 Temporary Paid Leave Program

This program is closed.


The Oregon Legislature’s Emergency Board established the COVID-19 Temporary Paid Leave Program to help bridge the gap left by the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act. This $30 million program was established with money received from the federal government to help Oregon respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds have been dispersed to people in almost every Oregon county.

This program is only for workers unable to work because they need to quarantine or isolate and their employer does not provide COVID-19-related paid time off. You may not qualify if you don’t work in Oregon or meet the income requirements; you have COVID-19-related paid time off; you received unemployment benefits for the time off due to quarantine; or you received workers’ compensation benefits for the time off due to quarantined.
