I understand that this procedure change is for the safety of all persons present in the facility and to limit to the extent possible everyone’s risk of exposure. I understand that it is my responsibility to inform any Emergency Contact persons of the information contained herein.
       

     


     

    1. I understand that IF there is an emergency or special circumstances requiring me to enter the facility beyond the designated drop-off and pick-up area, I MUST wash my hands before entering, remove my shoes and wear a mask. While in the facility I must practice social distancing and remain 6ft from all other people, except for my own child.
       

     


     

    1. I understand that to enter upon the facility premises my child must be free from COVID-19 symptoms. If, during the day, any of the following symptoms appear my child will be separated from the rest of the people in the center. I will be contacted, and my child MUST be picked up from the facility within 30 minutes of being notified.
      Symptoms include:

      • fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
      • dry cough
      • shortness of breath
      • chills
      • loss of taste or smell
      • sore throat
      • muscle aches

       
      While we understand that many of these symptoms can also be related to non-COVID-19 related issues we must proceed with an abundance of caution during this Public Health Emergency. These symptoms typically appear 2-7 days after being infected so please take them seriously. Your child will need to be symptom free without any medications for 72 hours before returning to the facility.
       

     


     

    1. I understand that Beary Cherry Tree is taking every precaution to keep my child healthy, utilizing the Office of Public Health guidelines. These include:

      • Requiring staff to take everyday precautions to prevent the spread of respiratory illness such as COVID-19 such as washing hands often, cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces, avoiding close contact, covering coughs and sneezes and covering mouth and nose with face masks.
      • Requiring sick children and staff to stay home.
      • Isolating children who become sick (before they are picked up) followed by cleaning and disinfecting processes.
      • Implementing social distancing strategies.
      • Changing parent drop-off and pick-up processes.
      • Screening children and staff upon arrival.
      • Intensifying cleaning and disinfecting efforts.
      • Ensuring proper diapering techniques are followed.
      • Ensuring proper washing, feeding, and holding of children.

      • Ensuring healthy food preparation and meal service.
      • Addressing vulnerable/high risk groups.

       

     


     

    1. I understand that outside of care, in order to control my child’s exposure in the community, I will comply with any and all state, county or local stay-at-home orders, and CDC recommendations.
       

     


     

    1. I will immediately notify Beary Cherry Tree management if I become aware of any person with whom my child or I have had contact exhibits any of the symptoms listed in Number 1 above, is advised to self-isolate, quarantine, or has tested positive, or is presumed positive for COVID-19. Further, I will immediately notify Beary Cherry Tree management if anyone from my place of employment is presumed positive or tests positive for COVID-19 whether or not I have had direct contact with that person.
       

     


     

    1. I understand that while present in the facility each day my child will be in contact with children, families and other employees who are also at risk of community exposure. I understand that no list of restrictions, guidelines or practices will remove 100% of the risk of exposure to COVID-19 as the virus can be transmitted by persons who are asymptomatic and before some people show signs of infection. I understand that I play a crucial role in keeping everyone in the facility safe and reducing the risk of exposure by following the practices outlined herein.
       

     


     

    1. I understand that if a classroom is required to quarantine that I am still responsible for payment.
