8/30/21: Updated Guidance with Q & A from Provider Call

To All Family, Large Family, and Center Child Care Providers,

The first part of this email was sent to you previously.  However, at the most recent Provider Call, there were several questions asked and we wanted to supply you with written answers to those questions to assist you as your work with children and their families.  Our thanks to the Division of Public Health for additional answers and information review.

As always, contact your licensing specialist with questions.
