Key Provincial Updates and Resources for Health Professionals
Today, the Ontario government announced its plan to reopen child care centres across the province to support the next stage of the province's reopening framework. Child care operators will be required to follow strict health protocols to ensure the safety of child care staff and children including:
  • Cohorting ― putting children and staff in groups of 10 or less day over day;
  • COVID-19 response plan ― all child care settings will be required to have a plan in place if a child, parent or staff member/provider is exposed to COVID-19;
  • Screening ― all staff and children must be screened prior to entry to the child care setting.  
  • Daily attendance records ― child care settings must keep daily records of all attendees in order to support contact tracing;
  • Cleaning ― child care settings must be thoroughly cleaned before opening and frequently thereafter;
  • No visitors ― only essential visitors are permitted entry into the child care setting;
  • Implementing drop-off and pick-up protocols in a way that facilitates physical distancing.

The Government has also expanded the data shared through the Daily Report to included more detailed breakdowns about the cumulative cases, mode of acquision, testing and positivity rates. See Ministry Daily report below.
