Including sanitation, disinfection, screening, masks and reporting of positive cases.
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.
Facility directors are to report to Child Care Licensing as soon as possible any reportable communicable disease, including COVID-19, found to be present in the child care facility. The link to report to Child Care Licensing and submit online can be found here. The Office of Public Health Investigation and Epidemiology (OPHIE) and the local health authority must also be notified. Directors are to adhere to OPHIE guidance. More information on how and what to report is included in the attached documents.
