With the Governor’s temporary ban on large group gatherings and the choice made by certain local school districts to electively close, child care providers have been inquiring as to what steps they should be taking. At this time, there is no immediate intention or direction from state authorities to mandate the closure of child care or early learning facilities.

The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving. A new document is now available from the Snohomish Health District to provide some guidance for child care and early
learning facilities to follow. That guidance document is available here: https://www.snohd.org/DocumentCenter/View/3413/Guidance-for-Child-Care-Providers-and-the-Early-Learning-Community?bidId=
