Kids in Motion wants to update you on our plan regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We understand that your child is priceless and it’s our responsibility as a childcare provider and advocate to make sure
your child is safe and nurtured during these challenging times. We pride ourselves on open communication and would like to take the time to update you. We have increased our internal cleaning procedures and continue sanitize frequently touched areas.
Kids in Motion will remain open and operating during normal business hours Monday- Friday 6:30am- 6:30pm. We are working closely with the CDC, Bright from the Start and our local health department and will inform you if anything changes.
Statement from Bright from the Start
In a recent news conference, Governor Brian Kemp expressed his support for local communities’ decisions to close schools and child care programs. The Governor did NOT say, however, that local school systems and child care programs MUST close. The decision to close schools or child care programs is up to local authorities and local business owners like you if
you determine that closing your program is in the best interest of your children and families.
If you choose to close your program for an extended period, please let your CCS consultant know as soon as possible.
The CDC says coronavirus outbreaks in young children are uncommon, and severe symptoms are even more rare. Even so, to prevent the spread of illness, observe the following:
· Continue to monitor the children in your care for signs of illness including fever, cough, difficulty breathing, body aches, fatigue, sore throat, headache, and diarrhea.
· Continue to encourage good health practices such as appropriate handwashing; covering coughs or sneezing with a tissue; and regularly disinfecting surfaces.
· Ensure that your program enforces the rules prohibiting children and staff who are sick or who show symptoms of illness from being in child care facilities. If they are sick, they should stay home.
The Governor and the Georgia Department of Public Health have emphasized that the most vulnerable people at risk for COVID-19/coronavirus are adults age 60+ with underlying chronic
conditions. This would be a good time to check on older family members or neighbors to make sure they are aware of this pandemic and have everything they need including food and prescriptions.
