Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Nevada Regulations have been integrated to help child care providers reduce the risk of coronavirus spread within their facilities. The Nevada Child Care Licensing unit has updated documents (linked below) that show providers how CDC recommendations pair with state-level requirements. Facilities are encouraged to utilize the Operating Checklist and reference guide while continuing to operate during this time of important vigilance. Child care facilities should use the Operating Checklist to help prepare for inspections, as surveyors will be completing this checklist as part of each on-site inspection.
