Coronavirus / COVID-19

As part of the measures implemented in schools and childcare facilities to combat COVID-19, family leave related to the COVID-19 pandemic has been introduced.

This is a specific procedure which allows a parent of a child between the ages of 4 and 13 to benefit from this extended leave in case of:

  • quarantine or isolation of a child on the order or recommendation of the Health Directorate or competent authority;
  • partial or total suspension of activities in schools and childcare facilities.

Due to the current health situation, this family leave has been extended until 23 July 2022 inclusive.

The application form is now available on

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