Schools and Students Guidelines

Childcare Facilities

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released guidance for child care centers and early education programs and requested all facilities to report closures.  IDPH provided additional guidance, including what childcare facilities should do in the event an infected person enters a facility. EPA-approved disinfectants used to eliminate COVID-19 and cleaning guidance for facilities with a suspected/confirmed COVID-19 case is available but may change as new information is learned about the virus.
