Midland ISD leaders consider extending paid leave for employees who test positive for COVID-19

If the extension is approved, staff who test positive would receive eight days of paid sick leave.

MIDLAND, Texas — Midland ISD leaders are considering extending COVID-19 paid leave for teachers and staff who test positive for the virus.

Under the CARES Act, district employees were given up to two weeks of paid sick leave following a positive COVID-19 test.

However, that act expired on December 30.

If leaders approve the extension of the policy, the district would allow eight days of paid sick leave for any employee who tests positive.

This extension would expire on June 21.
