null Is a claimant eligible for benefits if his or her employment has been impacted by COVID-19?

If an individual is out of work due to COVID-19, they can apply for benefits. Our staff will determine whether or not the individual is eligible. Each case is very fact specific, so we cannot just make a blanket statement that someone would or would not be eligible for benefits.
