Amazon told employees in the United States that it's reducing paid leave for its COVID isolation policy. 

The e-commerce giant will now only pay for seven days of paid leave instead of the previous allowance of 10 days.

The decrease corresponds with the CDC recommendation for isolating for five days after being exposed or testing positive.

Amazon says all employees must report a positive diagnosis and can still request additional leave if necessary.
