COVID-19 Resources

May 11, 2023 marked the end of the Federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency declaration. Vaccines, treatments, and testing remain available but some data and reporting sources have changed. Stay informed about COVID-19 by visiting the Colorado Department of Public Health | State Emergency Operations Center web page so that your program can continue to operate safely and efficiently while serving children and families. We will update this page periodically as we discover additional resources for child care providers.
