DeWine made a new change to how daycares can operate on Sunday. He said all centers, beginning Thursday and will go through April 30, must operate as a temporary pandemic child care center.
What that means:
No more than 6 children can be in a room
No more than 1 teacher per 6 children
If there is a shared space, that space must have a rigorous cleaning schedule.
Keep children of parents who work for the same employer together, if possible.
Limit parent interaction at drop off and pickup
“Our goal is to keep the kids safe, the families of the children safe, and to make sure that there are enough health care workers to man the hospitals and do the jobs that need to be done,” Columbus Distribution Services
