We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?

I am a developer and one of my performance metrics is "Utilization" (billable hours). I am finding it hard to meet this goal (get enough work from my project team), accomplish all my admin tasks, and take vacation/holidays. Any advice?
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Got an offer from the government and they are asking me to complete the pre-employment requirements. Start date will be established after we find out that I meet those equipments.

Monday and not even noon and I am so exhausted I just want to lie down. Toddler woke me up at two am and I basically couldn’t fall back asleep after that because I was so stressed about the week. MDP came back from a week of vacation and had a bunch of things he didn’t like and chewed me out about this morning. I just feel super over it all. Hard to imagine continuing in this business. Those who have left for corporate work do you find it less stressful, more sustainable?

If I reached my required hours (45) for the week, do I still have to put PTO for tomorrow?
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
