Shining Stars and Pre-Kindergarten Isolation Guidance

*Attention Parents of Shining Stars and Pre-Kindergarten Students*

Please be advised that there has been no change in quarantine times for our early childcare programs. This includes staff members that are employed at these sites.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have not changed their COVID-19 quarantine guidance for early care and learning programs. Because most of these programs serve children in an age group that is not yet eligible for vaccination, the guidance emphasizes using multiple COVID-19 prevention strategies together to protect children and adults, including encouraging staff and family vaccination and a 14-day quarantine. Find these and other COVID-19 prevention strategies in the NCDHHS ChildCareStrongNC Public Health Toolkit. We understand that the varying COVID-19 quarantine guidelines may cause confusion. Please view the links below or feel free to contact your student’s principal for further clarification.
