Leave for family reasons: the new application form is online

Coronavirus / COVID-19

As part of the measures implemented in schools and childcare facilities to combat COVID-19, the leave for family reasons in relation with the COVID-19 pandemic has been implemented.

This is a specific procedure which allows the parent of a child of less than 13 years of age (until 18 years of age in the case of a hospitalisation) to benefit from this extended leave in case of:

  • quarantine or isolation of a child on the order or recommendation of the Health Directorate;
  • the child's vulnerability to COVID-19;
  • partial or total suspension of activities in schools and childcare facilities.

Due to the current health situation, the leave for family reasons has been extended until 14 September 2021 inclusive.

The new application form is available on

Please note: both parents cannot take leave for family reasons at the same time.
