LSCC follows the OSSE, the CDC, and other local and federal guidelines and recommendations that are applicable to our center. Below is a high-level summary of some of the guidelines we follow. For more detail, please refer to “Health and Safety Guidance for Child Care Providers: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Recovery Period". As new information becomes available, these guidelines could change, be modified or deleted depending on circumstances.
Daily Health Screening: Parents/guardians must check their child’s temperature daily two hours or less before arrival to the center and complete the daily health screening questionnaire. Anyone who does not satisfy any of the criteria on the daily health screening will NOT be admitted to the center. Staff will do a “wellness check” every morning and throughout the day as needed. Children and staff MUST not come to the center if they are showing any signs of sickness.
Handwashing, Cleaning, Disinfection, and Sanitization: Children are encouraged to wash their hands on a routine basis, for example, upon entering the center, before and after meals, before and after bathroom breaks, before and after changing activities, etc. Toys and soft surfaces are washed, disinfected and sanitized throughout the day. Common areas of the center are cleaned throughout the day and at the end of the day (floors, door handles, walls, doors, windows, kitchen area, etc).
