Support for Child Care Leaders and Staff during COVID-19

Our Child Care Task Force is working with child care programs in Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties to provide COVID-19 support and resources. Email us at EHChildcare@tchd.org for questions regarding child care programs and continue to refer back to this page for updated information.

Vaccines

On January 29, Governor Polis announced the updated Colorado vaccine distribution plan which includes PreK-12 educators, child care workers in licensed child care programs, and people age 65-69 in phase 1B.2 of the plan. These groups will be eligible to sign-up for the vaccine beginning February 8. There are limited doses of vaccine coming to Colorado for now. We are still working our way through previous groups and it will take time before your vaccine is ready and it is your turn.

Prepare Your Center for Your Turn

Our vaccine team is working to identify vaccine providers who will be offering appointments for childcare workers.

  1. Find the latest information on where and when to get the vaccine on our COVID-19 vaccine webpage. You can also sign up for the COVID-19 Update newsletter to get the latest information. 
  2. Provide employees with proof of employment such as a badge, pay stub, letter, etc.
  3. Staff will need to self-schedule with vaccine providers. Find the updated provider lists on our COVID-19 vaccine webpage.

Include the What to Do About COVID-19 in your Child Care guidance to ensure that your facility is ready to respond. This will be important if you have a COVID-19 positive individual or if a child or teacher is associated with someone outside your facility that is ill. 

Continue to refer to the Cases and Outbreak Guidance in Child Care and Schools to help guide decisions regarding COVID-19. 

Illnesses at Your Facility

Use an illness log to help keep track of sick people and their symptoms.

If you have a case or suspect an outbreak is occurring at your facility, contact us at EHChildcare@tchd.org. Provide the name of your center, the person to contact to discuss further, and a brief description of your situation. Please do not include specific names or other identifying information in your description.
