Cet article a cherché à comprendre les barrières qui empêchent les gens de rester à la maison lorsqu’ils sont malades du COVID-19 (présentéisme du COVID-19) afin de comprendre les disparités de santé et la transmission du COVID-19 et d’orienter la politique sociale et du lieu de travail.

Objective:  We sought to understand barriers to staying home from work when sick from COVID-19 (COVID-19 presenteeism) to understand COVID-19 health disparities and transmission and guide workplace and social policy. Methods:  We used logistic regression models to assess which socioeconomic factors were associated with intended COVID-19 presenteeism among an online study population working outside their home in March 2020 (N = 220). Results:  Overall, 34.5% of participants reported intended COVID-19 presenteeism. Younger individuals and individuals making over $90,000 per year were less likely to report COVID-19 presenteeism. Individuals who were worried about having enough food had 3-fold higher odds of intended COVID-19 presenteeism. Conclusion:  Current policies around food access, paid sick leave, and other workplace protections need to be expanded and made more accessible to reduce health disparities as well as the transmission of COVID-19 and other infections.
