As all of you know, COVID-19 cases in Illinois are on the rise. The risk is not only in direct contact exposure; there can be grave consequences if we freely mix in different groups and compromise on health and safety.
Though it may be a challenge, we are up for it. We all must continue our COVID-19 safety practices.
We are grateful for you and all your efforts towards keeping our children and communities safe. Thank you for making a difference.
Let’s all continue to wear a mask. Watch our distance. And wash our hands.
From the Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development's Child Care Provider Town Hall Webinars and Recourses regarding timely and useful safety reminders, current and emerging public health data, and suggestions for how to prepare for the upcoming holidays as the pandemic persists:
- Webinar Recording
- English Webinar PowerPoint
- Spanish Webinar PowerPoint

With the holiday season, we will collectively have to continue to take a proactive approach to reimagining our festivities in order to stay safe. You have been doing an amazing job at keeping our children and families healthy, and this campaign aims to remind us all to stay strong and keep going!
