New York City’s Board of Health voted to allow child care centers to reopen on Monday.
Mayor de Blasio said it’s been a struggle for parents with only a small percentage of daycares open during the pandemic and those were only for children of essential workers.
He said strict coronavirus related protocols will be in place once roughly 3000 city regulated and school based day cares reopen.
“No more than 15 kids in a room," he said. "All kids, all staff will be required to wear face coverings. There will be daily health screenings, regular cleanings.”
He also said there would be limited sharing of toys and city inspections to ensure compliance.
