The start of the school year only took place 10 days ago, but there are already 524 classes and 32 schools closed because of several cases of coronavirus. Parents are forced to adapt but a partial unemployment scheme is put in place. It’s a “relief in terms of organization. It is true that it is not easy to find how to satisfy our children and us because at work it is a bit complicated“, says a mother.
The government has already announced that in the event of a school, nursery or college closure, parents will be able to obtain a replacement income. More specifically, employees in the private sector will receive partial unemployment (84% of net salary), the self-employed will be entitled to daily allowances. For civil servants, special absences are provided. Gabriel Attal, the government spokesperson, however, relativized the closures of 32 schools: “This corresponds to 0.05% of establishments.”
