Guidance in Response to COVID-19

December 4, 2020

Dear Child Care Providers,

The Department of Human Services (DHS) has updated child care guidance in response to COVID-19. This guidance has been developed in close consultation with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH). The health and safety of children, family, staff and child care providers is of the utmost importance. Child care programs provide an essential support for working families.

We want to thank each and every one of you as we all try to do our best for children and families while we continue to navigate the uncertainty of this pandemic. Please reach out to your Child Care Nurse Consultant, DHS Consultant or CCR&R Child Care Consultant with questions.

Again, we know that this pandemic has been demanding for everyone involved and we appreciate your diligence in keeping children safe, implementing guidelines, and supporting your community. Thank you for always rising to the challenge.
