COVID Response

December 2020

 

Dear parent/guardian,

 

Thank you for your ongoing efforts which have made the child care re-opening process possible, and for adhering to public health and safety measures that have ensured child care settings remain safe places.

 

The holidays are going to look a little different this year and we understand that there may be challenges as the winter break approaches, but we encourage all families to consider how we can work together to make this time as safe as possible, and start 2021 off right. We would also like to remind you about the actions we are taking to reinforce the health and safety protocols aimed at protecting us all while

 

During the holidays, it is important for everyone to adhere to the public health measures in our community, at home with family, at work and at child care. By following public health advice, we can all have a safe and fun holiday season. You can check the government’s holiday web page for more direct and up-to-date guidance on how individuals and families can plan for a safe holiday season.

 

Throughout the holiday season, The HUB Child & Family Centre will continue to:

    ·  Reinforce masking and hand hygiene etiquette, as well as physical distancing

    ·  Limit interactions between groups of children and staff/providers

    ·  Ensure that everyone is screened before they enter the child care premises

    ·  Perform enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of the toys, equipment, and premises

As a reminder, individuals showing symptoms of illness should not attend the child care program. All children, students, staff, and visitors must be screened for symptoms of illness every day before attending school or child care. To help meet this requirement, you may use either the provincial COVID-19 school screening tool or, the screening tool required by your school board, child care provider, or local public health unit. 

 

We encourage you to visit Ontario.ca/covidresponse to learn the public health measures in place in our community and remind you that these measures could change depending on public health trends, so please visit the website regularly. We also suggest checking out Hastings Prince Edward Public Health website as they may also have helpful resources and supports.

 

If you have any questions about what The HUB Child & Family Centre is doing to protect your children and family in response to COVID-19, please let me know.

 

Sincerely,

 

Susan Quaiff RECE
