The Texas Workforce Commission says people who choose not to return to work because of the COVID-19 pandemic can still receive their benefits for certain reasons. That includes:

  • people considered at high risk.
  • those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have a family member with the virus
  • people under quarantine; and,
  • people who have no childcare alternatives.
