Are healthcare workers covered by workers’ comp in case of COVID-19?

In South Carolina, healthcare workers who become sick with COVID-19 are covered by workers’ comp if they can prove that they contracted the virus while performing their job duties. This can be done by providing evidence, such as a statement from a doctor confirming the diagnosis or documentation that shows they were actively providing care to a COVID-19-positive patient while they were on the job.
