While some Americans’ only job to promote public health right now is to simply (or not so simply) stay home, many workers don’t have that luxury. If you or someone you live with is sick (with COVID-19 symptoms or otherwise) but still going to work because you have a job in health care, sanitation, food services, postal work, the government, or any number of other industries deemed an essential service during the coronavirus pandemic, we want to hear from you. How have you and your family navigated decisions around sickness, like bringing in income while also keeping yourself, your loved ones, and the people you interact with safe?

If this sounds like your experience, we’d like to hear about it for a future article. You can remain anonymous if you prefer. Please keep in mind that filling out this form means you may be quoted in a BuzzFeed News article. You can also get in touch with me directly at
