(4)

A school district, at its discretion, may determine quarantine leave pursuant to this section is unnecessary if an employee can fulfill his or her job duties remotely during the quarantine period.

(5)

Leave granted pursuant to this section shall be on a day-by-day basis, as needed, and shall not accumulate or carry over year-to-year, and shall not be transferrable to any other classification of paid leave established by KRS 161.155, KRS 161.154, or local board of education policy.
