    Covid in childcare is an issue I’m currently struggling with – the preschool I work at closed for at least a week because a child tested positive. The lead teacher will have virtual lessons available for students, but I’m left without pay for a while and families are left without their regular childcare. I wouldn’t be surprised if the closure lasted longer with the way four year olds wear a mask. These children have 8 hour school days that includes two meals and a snack so exposure to viruses from other students is inevitable.
