April 12, 2022

COVID-19 and child care settings to mirror the statewide requirements that were adjusted this spring. The updated version of the "Child Care Provider COVID-19 Requirements and Recommendations" is now available on the Early Learning Division "For Providers" webpage

Some of the key guidance changes include the following:

  • Updated exclusion requirements and recommendations for child care
  • Mask recommendations that encourage programs to support individual choice to wear a mask
  • Updated recommendations for prevention strategies
  • Who to notify if there’s a case of COVID-19 in a facility

Many of these changes have already been in effect. A number of resource documents are also available such a  “Respect my mask” sign for families, an updated exclusion chart, and masking handout. 

You download the guidance document and find these resources, along with Frequently Asked Questions on COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine, on the ELD’s “For Providers” webpage.
