MOE Says Quarantined Teachers Must Get Full Pay

By Joseph Toe/LINA

MONROVIA, January 21 (LINA) - The Ministry of Education has announced that the salaries of teachers and other school personnel are not to be ceased or reduced for being absent from school while under Ebola quarantine.

The ministry mandates that school administrators fill the gap by taking over the classes of quarantined teachers.

This was contained in protocols instituted by the Ministry of Education in order to ensure a safe school environment when schools reopen next month, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The protocols require that school must ensure that staff and students under quarantine do not go to school for the 21 days but may return to school on day 22 after consulting the County Health Team (CHT) about their health condition.

The Ministry instructs that school administrators should raise awareness that those individuals do not pose any risks to others.

According to the protocols, school administrators, in collaboration with parents and guardians, are encouraged to provide, during quarantined period, students with learning materials and activities.

The protocols stipulate that persons with laboratory confined Ebola can, after consultation with the CHT, return to school after they have been treated and released from the hospital, noting “the person is cured from Ebola and can no longer transport the disease.”
