Car’Reyana Baker v. Sumpter Enterprises, Inc. and Zenith Insurance Company

In Car’Reyana Baker v. Sumpter Enterprises, Inc. and Zenith Insurance Company the issue is whether claimant’s alleged exposure to COVID is compensable. Claimant argues that while she was working for employer she contracted COVID from one or more co-employees and it should therefore be considered compensable. The claimant relied merely on her belief that she contracted COVID from her co-employees. E/C states that while the claimant was an employee at the time of the alleged injury, there was no injury by accident resulting from employment. The JCC found that there is insufficient objective medical evidence in the record to support a finding of compensability. Petition DENIED.
