Child care guidance

Last updated August 20, 2021.







Child care and early education program operators should refer to CDC’s page “COVID-19 Guidance for Operating Early Care and Education/Child Care Programs” for context-specific guidance about COVID-19 risk mitigation and disease response. These facilities may also be subject to state or local orders or mandates and should be sure to comply with any relevant regulations.   

All known or suspected outbreaks of COVID-19 must be reported to the appropriate local public health agency within 4 hours.
