I am in PA. Effective on 3/21 but supposedly pushes to 3/23 Tom wolf orders all non essential to life business to close.
I work in open pit mining. My employer has already asked me to come back to work Monday despite the mention of being fined for not closing.
Another factor in my life is my mother is finishing up her six courses of chemotherapy.
My employer knows my situation but has a shortage of employees. I have actually been laid off since Christmas due to slow work.
Now I'm afraid to go back with this virus. Im right in the hardest hit county in PA.
Am I within my right to refuse request for work with these current situation?
I went back the other week for a few days because one guy had an emergency. Well the other guy I was working with had a full blown cold. I then got sick and luckily did not pass it on to my mom who just needed blood transfusion from chemo effects.
I just don't feel safe and want to take any risk. Hoping for a few opinions.
