While the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) supports continued child care operations, the Department recognizes that some licensees may make the difficult decision to temporarily close. Factors to consider include:
- Continued access when facilities are in buildings that have closed
- Personal risk/risk to family members
- Low attendance or limited workforce
- Concerns related to ability to maintain a safe and sanitary environment for children/staff
KDHE requests that licensees notify their local licensing surveyor when temporarily closing their facility and to let the surveyor know when the facility re-opens.
