The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is currently recommending that child care operations continue operating at this time. However, local health officers may choose to make more stringent guidelines for local communities, up to and including mandatory closures. Childcare providers should be in close contact with their county health department to stay up to date with the latest guidance. Child care facilities may voluntarily choose to close for a period of time. KDHE Child Care Licensing will not issue blanket exceptions to increase capacity or eliminate other health or safety requirements. Child care facilities may not operate at alternate locations without a temporary license. Existing child care facilities must continue to operate within the terms of their license and comply with requirements.
