COVID-19 Testing in Child Care Programs

26 October 2021

The Child Development Division (CDD) has received questions about COVID-19 testing in child care programs, so we want to let you know that we are working on a couple of options in partnership with the Vermont Department of Health

We want to ensure the logistics of these options are worked out, so they are functional and clear. The data shows there is value in testing in response to a particular situation, an outbreak, and/or a family case, so we are looking at options to support these situations. We know you are looking forward to having testing in your toolbox, and we are working hard to make that possible.
