(CNN)When Raquel Minina's 11-year-old son Syrus came home from school in Paulding County, Georgia, last week with a sore throat, runny nodse and diarrhea, she was devastated.

A hairdresser by trade, she knew a diagnosis of Covid-19 would put her out of work for a month or more, despite all the careful safety precautions she'd been using to keep her clients safe.
"If I don't work I don't get paid," Minina said. "And if I'm quarantined at home, I would have to pay for food delivery, or I might be too sick to cook and have to pay for take-out, all of which I can't afford."
