Attention Providers! New Sonoma  County Guidance on Group Size

 

The Sonoma County Health Officer has amended the guidance for children's group sizes to mirror the most recent guidance from Community Care Licensing to allowed group of 16 or fewer INDIVIDUALS. 
 
This means that the COMBINED GROUP SIZE OF CHILDREN AND TEACHERS SHOULD BE NO LARGER THAN 16.
 
The guidance is contained in the FAQs, not in the Amendment to Health Order C19-05 issued September 23.
 
From the FAQ:
Q: Can I get childcare during the stay home order?
Yes. Programs providing care or supervision for children of all ages for less than 24 hours are allowed for stable groups of 16 or fewer individuals (“stable” means that the same individuals are in the same group each day). Click Here to Read More
