Ohio child care facilities will be permitted to reopen starting May 31, Gov. Mike DeWine announced in his Thursday afternooon news briefing. Like everything else in the state, they’ll look much different than they did in March.
Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton president Joni Close, who helped develop the guidelines that will govern the reopening process, said hygiene will be child care providers’ most important focus throughout the day. Although relatively few children have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or experienced serious complications as a result, they remain susceptible to the illness and can easily transmit it to more vulnerable adults without a strict regiment of sanitization.
