The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released updated information for COVID-19 Guidance for Operating Early Care and Education/Child Care Programs, as of Jan. 28, 2022, which include updated guidance to reflect new quarantine and isolation guidance and recommendations, specifying the circumstances when isolation and quarantine periods can be shortened, and updated guidance regarding staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.

It is consistently OCDEL’s message to follow the CDC COVID-19 Guidance for Operating Early Care and Education/Child Care Programs. If a change is issued, OCDEL will immediately communicate to the ECE community.
