After being told via email on Thursday that they had potentially been exposed to coronavirus, New York-area staffers for billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign were laid off Friday. The staffers are expected to lose their health insurance at the end of March.
In the email sent to staffers advising them of their possible coronavirus exposure, Bloomberg campaign human resources said the infected individual had not been present in the offices since Monday.
“In the meantime, as a precautionary measure, we ask that you continue to stay out of the office and work from home for the next 14 days,” the email said.
New York has been one of the states hardest hit by coronavirus with recent data indicating over 8,000 reported confirmed cases.
Campaign staffers were allegedly promised paid positions, including health insurance, until the November election.
