- Clarify the practices described in the CDC Guidance
- Emphasize how the guidance offers practices for keeping people healthy and safe
- Answer questions that are submitted by providers
The target audience for these webinars is currently operating providers. Since registration is limited, those not currently providing services to children should wait and watch the recorded webinars to be posted on the Pennsylvania Key website .
