CLEVELAND — Starting on Thursday, every day care that is open must have a pandemic license.
A maximum of six children will be allowed to be cared for per room in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 between the children and their families.
Shared space will be limited and common space in the day cares is advised against, according to Gov. Mike DeWine's order.
DeWine’s order advises that children of parents with the same employer should be cared for in the same rooms.
Parent interaction at drop-off should also be limited, DeWine ordered.
The day care center order will last until April 30.
