COVID Mitigation Policy

In terms of COVID and any other pandemic related practices, SCTCC meets or exceeds all guidelines set forth by State Licensing, the CDPH, and OSHA, as well as the recommendations set forth by CDC and our County Health Department.  These practices are subject to change.  Please refer to the following document for a summary (note that childcare guidance begins on page six).

All of our staff are vaccinated against COVID-19, and will participate in regular surveillance testing.  We encourage our participating families to do the same.  

All children and staff will wash their hands at a minimum each day: upon arrival each morning, before and after breakfast and lunch, after every diaper change, and upon leaving the center.

During COVID times, and for the benefit of all SCTCC families and staff, we will have a zero tolerance policy for children’s symptoms including, but not limited to fever/chills (over 99), cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle/body aches, headache, new loss of taste/smell, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea/vomiting, or diarrhea.

If any of the above symptoms, or any other symptoms deemed unhealthy by SCTCC staff are noted during the morning health check, we will ask that your child return home.  If we notice any symptoms during the day, we will ask that you pick up your child as soon as possible, with $1/ per minute charges occurring after 30 minutes.  

We take the mitigation of any potential COVID transmission at SCTCC with the utmost of seriousness. We realize our health guidelines may be more strict than those of other centers, or even as recommended by your doctor or the government health agencies.
