Most likely no. It wont affect your application.

The reason I think so, is because a break in employment is considered when a job ends either because the employer or employee ends the employment by ending the contract (let's say an open ended contract) or the contract had an end date (fixed duration contract, interim contract are examples). As this is not happening in your case it should most likely not affect your ctz application.

However its best to confirm it with your cityhall. I dont know how they are communicating during this corona period but you can email or call them.
