If you are a daycare provider or have kids in child care, the Alexandria Health Department will conduct the first of virtual two town hall meetings on the subject starting tonight (Thursday, Oct. 15) at 6 p.m.
“Guardians will be reminded of the steps they can take to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and share resources,” notes a city release.
One recommendation the city asks is for child care providers to complete an emergency child care provider registration form.
“This application is for any child care center or family day home program,” according to the city. “To date, the response has been strong. It is clear that the child care community wants to do what they can to help.”
Parents are also asked to fill out the parent child care needs registration form, and the city says it will notify families of “potential care providers that meet their needs.”
Topics of discussion include:
- When to keep a child home from daycare
- When to get a child tested for COVID-19
- When to return a child to daycare
- What are some common infection scenarios
As of Oct. 5, there are more than 60 child care providers in the city. Over the summer, the Alexandria Emergency Child Care Collaborative and Smart Beginnings Alexandria hosted a virtual child care open house.
The next virtual town hall will be held on Monday, October 19, at 6 p.m.
