Hello families, thank you for your continued support and patience as we navigate the pandemic and our policies. The CDC recently updated its policies around pandemic safety- including testing, quarantine, and vaccinations. We are considering what these changes would look like in our community since we have individuals too young to be fully vaccinated yet. We know safety is on everyone’s mind and any policy will have an effect on the children and families in our community. We hope to find a balance that meets the needs of the community. As we closely consider the new information, we would like to share with you the most recent CDC guidelines for Early Care settings. Please contact us via email at CDLS@umn.edu to share your perspective or ask any questions.
