    Hi all, a family member of mine is in her 60s and currently working as a shop assistant in a pharmacy. She lives alone and pays rent of over 900 euro a month so barely gets by each month as is.

    She's only out of hospital a few weeks back for a benign growth diagnosis but is now terrified of catching covid-19 and no longer wishes to work (after persuasion from myself to stop, she wanted to keep working at first and still asks that maybe she could come in in the evening).

    What are her options and entitlements here?

    Does this fall under the bracket of sickness pay ? She has already rang the doctor who more or less was telling her to look after herself is all, nothing about stopping working. Should she ring back and tell her she can't work given the cirucumstances?
