COVID-19 and Child Care Centres

As the Government of Ontario continues to implement its Framework for Reopening the Province, childcare centres and home care providers in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark are now permitted to re-open provided they have specific rules, enhanced health and safety, as well as strict operational requirements in place. When developing health and safety protocols, childcare providers are responsible for adhering to the advice set out in the Operational Guidance for Child Care During COVID-19 Outbreak (Version 8 – September 2021) document as well as that provided by Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (LGLDHU) in this Guidance Document. The Ministry of Education has indicated that childcare providers do not require local public health units to sign-off on health and safety protocols.
