Can an employer fire you because you are unable to make it to work due to the weather?
It depends if you have an employment contract or not. If not (and sometimes even then) you can be fired for any reason as you are an "employee at will' and it is at the companies discretion as to if they want to continue your employment.

What is the disability act that would apply to getting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and being fired because you are unable to work like usual?
Workers Compensation. Each state has an office for Workers Comp *the customarily used name)

Under the law, particularly Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), adverse employment actions such as firing or refusing to hire an employee… on the basis of his medical condition or disability (ex. taking leaves because of health) are considered as discriminatory and therefore, against the law. The employer is required to provide "reasonable accommodation" to a qualified individual with a disability, this includes allowing him/her to take time off or leaves because of his or her disability.

Is Lay off a situation where management is unable to provide employment due to non availability of work?
If it is a communicable disease problem, yes. but it is also the employer's responsibility to have a potential employee screened for health problems that may affect co-workers…. There have been legal fights over this and , for the most part, the plaintiff employees have lost. If the employee has a health problem he or she is obligated to report that there is a problem, but not the name of the disease or even some symptoms. This is all part of our nation's health and safety regulations. No one has the right to spread a disease.
