HHSC has enacted new emergency rules (PDF) that specify health and safety standards and procedures related to COVID-19 for child day care operations. You are required to post diaper changing procedures in all diaper changing areas and post signs describing handwashing steps near sinks used for handwashing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have resources and signs that can be printed. We have recently added a few of these resources to our Technical Assistance Library for your easy reference:

Safe and Healthy Diapering (PDF)

Handwashing Poster for Kids (PDF)

Handwashing Fact Sheets (PDF)

Handwashing: Keeping your Family Safe and Healthy (PDF)

Handwashing and Hand Sanitizer Use (PDF)
