Description: A team of researchers from Yale just published the results of the first large-scale study of the child care workforce during COVID-19. The Yale team compared COVID-19 rates in child care providers who continued providing child care during the first three months of the pandemic to those who did not. Their findings: providers and staff in programs that stayed open last spring were no more likely to contract COVID-19 than providers whose programs were closed. The Yale study will be published in the January 2021 issue of Pediatrics, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and was posted on the AAP website on October 14. The Yale research team surveyed more than 57,000 child care workers nationwide in May and June 2020, and asked them to self-report whether they had become infected with COVID-19 or been hospitalized. There was no difference in infection rates for workers whose programs stayed open and those whose programs closed. (author abstract)
