Safety Protocols For COVID-19
Yes, childcare facilities are open to all children. In addition to childcare establishments, summer camps, and other educational or recreational institutions or programs providing care or supervision for children of all ages are also allowed to operate. To the extent possible and compliant with any licensing requirements, these operations must also comply with the following conditions:
- They must be carried out in stable groups of 12 or fewer children (“stable” means that the same 12 or fewer children are in the same group each day and for at least three consecutive weeks).
- While within their stable group, children and caregivers/counselors are not required to social distance from each other and may share equipment.
- Children shall not change from one group to another or attend more than one childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational instruction or program simultaneously.
- If more than one group of children is at one facility, each group shall be in separate rooms or spaces that cannot be accessed by children or adults outside the stable group. Groups shall not mix with each other.
- If different groups will access a shared area, they must do so at different times, and any shared equipment or high-touch surfaces must be sanitized between uses.
- Providers, educators and other staff cannot serve more than one group of children and shall remain solely with that group of children during the duration of the childcare establishment, summer camp, or other educational or recreational institution’s program.
- Children and staff will be required to wear masks at all times except when in the pool or eating
- Temperature checks will be done each day for campers and counselors before camps
- Children and staff will maintain 6 feet of distance
- Locker rooms will be closed. One bathroom will be available for use for each camp
- Children and staff will be required to stay home if they show any symptoms of illness
The requirements above serve the purpose of limiting the co-mingling of various households and creating stable childcare groups (or in effect, a contained “second household”). To minimize interactions and keep the childcare “households” stable, the Order does not allow a child to attend two separate care settings at the same (for example, a morning camp and a different afternoon camp). Similarly, a caregiver could not care for more than one group of children at the same time, and could not alternate groups (for example, Group A on MWF and Group B on Tu/Thurs) at the same time.
