Can my employer insist I provide proof of being ill when I take paid sick leave?

I thought I had COVID recently, even though I didn’t test positive. (My partner had it, and I had mild flu symptoms.) My employer is insisting I provide proof of being ill before giving me four paid sick days. Can they do that?
