Stafford Co. Schools Allow 10 Extra Days of COVID Leave for Vaccinated

Stafford County Public Schools is providing 10 extra days of paid leave for vaccinated employees who contract COVID-19 or must quarantine — a perk that isn’t sitting well with one unvaccinated teacher.

The teacher told WJLA-TV (Channel 7) that she’s had to burn through seven days of her own sick leave to quarantine after contact with a student who tested positive for the coronavirus.

The teacher said she applied to the school system for an exception to the emergency-leave policy, but doubts she’ll be approved. The quarantine will leave her with just three of her 10 allotted sick days for the school year, WJLA reported.

Labor and employment law attorney Katie Lipp told the station that while what the Northern Virginia school district is doing is legal, she wouldn’t recommend preferential treatment for those vaccinated.
