Notice of Risk for child care and Early Years

With the increased spread of Omicron, there is a risk in any setting for transmission of the virus. We do expect there could be some transmission when children from different families attend the same child care and/or EarlyON Centre to participate in programming.  

Children with COVID-19 are more likely than adults to exhibit very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, but can still transmit the virus to others. This means that children can bring home a virus acquired at a child care and/or EarlyON program.  

Screening, hand hygiene and staying home when ill are some of the many measures that help make child care and early years services healthier spaces and that help reduce the risk of transmission. 

Each individual needs to assess their own personal risks for severe disease balanced with the benefits of the activity in question when deciding what is best for them and their family.
