COVID-19 

Regarding COVID-19, Childcare providers are getting new guidelines almost daily. Our new drop-off routine has been going extremely well. Thank you for all your help. Remember, Part of the guideline is that parents are asked to take Childs temperature before drop-off even if child looks fine and has no symptoms, EVERY morning before coming to daycare. If there is a Fever of 100* or over, Cough, Sore Throat, Congestion or Runny Nose, Vomiting, Diarrhea and/or Difficulty Breathing Stay Home. This includes siblings. Please remember, bring your child to daycare freshly bathed, in clean clothes and ready for the day. Upon arrival, remove shoes and place them outside in the designated area. Morning health screening and temp checks will continue. This will most likely be our new norm for quite awhile to come. We will continue to do our best here at Mattice Family Daycare to keep a safe, healthy and sanitized home, not only for the best interest of your children, but mine as well. Thank you for doing your part as I continue to do mine.   


Helpful Tips:

 **Remember to wash hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds or while they sing the "ABC" song all the way through. 

**Stay home at any sign of cold/flu... Fever, cough, sore throat, eye/nose yuck, or vomiting and/or diarrhea. 

** Wear a mask whenever you go into town.
