This is a question that is seriously giving me anxiety and sleepless night so I hope someone can help me understand/clarify. Can I be fired if I refuse to go back to teaching in June when the schools are hypothetically set to re-open? Context: I have asthma but I am not in the NHS list of vulnerable people because I am italian and i dont really go to doctors here in London where I live. When I need urgent medical attention (happened once or twice in 13 years) I go to the hospital and when I need to do anything else I just go home to my doctors there. Now, Ive not had an asthma episode in years although I risked dying several times as a child and a young adult. Now, I am scared to even go to the shops to buy food right now so i get everything delivered and Ive not left my house not even for a walk and the thought of going back to work so soon is destroying me. I travel 1 hr and 15 minutes to get to my school and change bus-overground-underground-bus again-walk. On what grounds can I demand to be LEFT ALONE BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO DIE.
