Early childhood education (ECE) programs have many questions about how to keep children and staff healthy during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Guidance for open programs is now available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). This question-and-answer chat is a follow-up to the Caring for Children in Group Settings During COVID-19 webinar, which took place April 24, 2020. Michele Cheung, MD, FAAP, a pediatric infectious disease expert, will offer additional guidance.

Topics for the webinar include:

  • Understanding what we currently know about COVID-19
  • Reviewing guidance for ECE programs currently open
  • Integrating the guidance with best practices in managing infectious disease
