Can volunteer first responders get workers’ comp for COVID-19?

In New York, some volunteer first responders are eligible to receive benefits if they sustain a work-related injury. Lawmakers are currently trying to get a new bill approved that would extend benefits to volunteer first responders who contract the Coronavirus in the line of duty. These benefits would provide coverage for testing and treatment of COVID-19 to volunteer firefighters and EMS workers, along with other benefits.
