Learn about the new guidance from the CDC that provides details for providers and programs that choose to remain open, focusing on social distancing strategies, cleaning and disinfection efforts, modifying drop-off and pick-up procedures, caring for infants and toddlers, healthy hand hygiene behavior, food preparation and meal service, vulnerable and high-risk groups and how best to maintain adequate rations of staff to children to ensure safety. It also provides numerous links to resources that provide even greater detail, including information regarding children’s risks concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19).
