On April 10, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued technical corrections to the temporary regulations it issued April 1 implementing the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which became law on March 18, 2020.
The corrections address internal inconsistencies, such as an error in a sample calculation of worked hour, capitalization of a defined term, cross references, punctuation, etc. The publication can be found here: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/04/10/2020-07711/paid-leave-under-the-families-first-coronavirus-response-act-correction
