Childcare becoming scarce

Door County is one COVID-19 case away from potentially being really short on licensed childcare facilities available for parents who need to head to work. Childcare centers are among the critical services not affected by Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ order to ban gatherings of 50 or more people to limit the impact of the coronavirus. Some childcare centers, like the Door County YMCA’s Barker Child Development Center, will close their doors beginning on Wednesday to allow parents to find other options. Others like Northern Door Children’s Center in Sister Bay are staying open until a positive COVID-19 case is discovered in the area. Karen Corekin-DeLaMer from Northern Door Children’s Center says they are trying to keep things normal with some extra sanitation practices thrown into the mix.

Corekin says they are looking into ways to connect with families if or when they do have to shut down so they can continue seeing the kids and not disrupt the routine of their students too much. You can see Northern Door Children’s Center’s letter to parents by clicking this link.
