Reporting Nevada COVID-19 Claims

Under Nevada’s workers’ compensation laws, a worker may be entitled to compensation if the worker establishes by preponderance of the evidence that the occupational disease arose out of and in the course of employment. The infected worker must give written notice within seven days after the worker has knowledge of disability and its relationship to employment.
 
When a worker reports a potential coronavirus exposure, a Form C-1, Notice of Injury of Occupational Disease - Incident Report should be completed. The actual claim for occupational disease benefits is filed when a medical provider completes the Form C-4, Employee’s Claim for Compensation/Report of Initial Treatment. You can also file a claim here.
 
Just as with any other claim for an industrial injury or occupation disease, there is no claim until the Form C-4 has been completed and filed. Within six days of receiving a copy of Form C-4, you must file a Form C-3 (Employer’s Report of Industrial Injury of Occupational Disease) and forward that form to us. That form will give you an opportunity to provide us with information concerning your belief about COVID-19 being contracted at work. File a claim if a worker presents a positive COVID-19 test and states to you that they feel there is a probability they were exposed at work.
 
If all the necessary forms are filed in a timely manner, the mere fact that a claim has been filed does not mean it is compensable. We will investigate all claims and decide the compensability in accordance with the applicable Nevada laws and the circumstances of each claim.
