Child Care Facilities in the COVID-19 Phased Reopening

Now that the state has entered Phase 1 of Governor Cooper’s reopening plan, child care facilities may begin to reopen.  Safe child care is an important component that enables parents to return to work knowing their child will be well cared for. 

Parents and child care centers should understand the requirements of reopening in Phase 1.  Child care providers that wish to reopen their facility should complete the COVID-19 Child Care Reopening Application  at least 48 hours before reopening.

The COVID-19 Child Care Center ReOpening - Step by Step Instructions (PDF) will guide facilities through a process that provides consultation on a plan to meet the updated health and safety guidelines and answers questions about reopening.  Providers who have remained open and completed a COVID-19 Emergency Child Care Provider Application will not need to fill out this application unless they closed after submitting their emergency application.

Child care centers will also need to demonstrate the ability to meet the updated health and safety guidelines (updated May 6, 2020) established by NC Department of Health and Human Services.  Once this is accomplished, the facility will be recognized with a “COVID-19 Health and Safety Certificate,” which is required to be displayed.
