We will continue to social distance as much as we can with 1 to 6 year old children. We will do small groups and repeat.  Set projects up at several tables to spread the kids out.  A table with four seats, seat two children or a table with 8 stagger and seat 4 children.  We will use all your tables and stack unused chairs.  We will limit how many in any area at a time like the loft.
These are updates, important information from four sources on operating childcare during Covid.
At nap time, ensure that children’s nap time mats are spaced out as much as possible, ideally 6 feet apart. Placing children head to toe in order to further reduce the potential for viral spread.
Information about COVID-19 in children is somewhat limited, but the information that is available suggests that many children have mild symptoms. However, a small percentage of children have been reported to have more severe illness.
  •   In the United States, 22% of the population is made up of infants, children, and adolescents aged <18 years (children) (3).
  • Data from China suggest that pediatric coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases might be less severe than cases in adults and that children (persons aged <18 years) might experience different symptoms than adults.
  •   In this preliminary description of pediatric U.S. COVID-19 cases, relatively few children with COVID-19 are hospitalized, and fewer children than adults experience fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Severe outcomes have been reported in children, including three deaths.
  •   Pediatric COVID-19 patients might not have fever or cough. Social distancing and everyday preventive behaviors remain important for all age groups because patients with less serious illness and those without symptoms likely play an important role in disease transmission.
  •   Among younger children, (15%) occurred in children aged <1 year,  (11%) in children aged 1–4 years, and (15%) in children aged 5–9 years.
