Evers directed Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary-designee Andrea Palm to restrict the size of all child care settings. Centers may not operate with more than 10 staff present at a time and may not operate with more than 50 children present at a time. The closure will remain in effect for the duration of the public health emergency.
Providers are being asked to prioritize families of healthcare and essential service providers, using good faith to determine who those families are. Those using care who can keep their children at home are being asked to do so. State agencies have updated guidance for providers to implement this emergency order.
Oneida County Public Health Officer Linda Conlon says she's hoping the public steps up to take care of the children of health care providers, people who are on the front lines of the COVID crisis.
