Child care is the perfect breeding ground for viruses and bacteria. Children quickly pick up these pathogens from their fellow students after frequently used items end up in the children’s mouths. And what does the spreading of these pathogens do? Sometimes, it can infect a whole classroom, staff included! What does this mean for a child care center? It means requiring other staff to work overtime in place of absent teachers. It means additional time is needed to wipe down, soak, rinse, and dry every inch of a classroom, making sure pathogens are eliminated. These scenarios can be utterly debilitating to a child care center during peak times of the year, especially during today’s current events.
