Maryland together: Maryland's recovery plan for child care
This is a compilation of documents related to plans to reopen child care settings in Maryland following the 2020 COVID-19 statewide shutdown. At the beginning is the state's draft, as of May 2020, of a reopening plan. Also included is the state's guidance for operating child care sites during the pandemic. A timeline for the phase-out plan for the state government's Essential Personnel Child care (EPCC) and Essential Personnel School Age (EPSA) funding program is laid out for when more and more workers return to work and need child care. Appended to this file are copies of three guidelines for pandemic child care reopening, one from the Federal CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), a second from the Maryland Family Network, and a third from the Maryland Road to Recovery Work Group. Also included are a fact sheet by childcarerelief.org entitled Child Care is Essential to America's Economic Recovery. Finally, an additional document provides the results of a survey of child care providers to learn of their reopening challenges.
Related resources include summaries, versions, measures (instruments), or other resources in which the current document plays a part. Research products funded by the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation are related to their project records.
