COVID-19 Child Care Listserv Message Archive

The Department of Children and Families is committed to keeping child care programs informed during this health care emergency. This continues to be a fluid and fast moving situation, so we have created a place where child care programs can view messages that have been sent on the Child Care Listserv during the emergency.

During these unpredictable times, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) Division of Early Care and Education (DECE) will send updates every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the pandemic to everyone who has subscribed to the DCF Child Care listserv.

Please sign up to receive Child Care listserv messages and announcements to stay informed about this crisis.
