Our staff can earn Paid Time Off (up to 5 days) for the fiscal year. Because of COVID-19, this benefit has been exhausted for the remainder of the year - the new year starts July 1st. We don't offer sick pay, but teachers use PTO for this purpose. I feel I have an obligation to pay staff if a child or another staff member tests positive for COVID-19 resulting on a shutdown, or an employee having to isolate or quarantine. However, I don't see it fair to compensate if exposure happened outside of the work place. We are doing everything possible to minimize risk at work, but I have no control over what employees are doing outside of the work place. Has anyone had to deal or set policy for this?
