Little Hoku Montessori Academy participated in a nationwide survey study from Yale University, where researchers asked about program operations, safety measures, and precautions taken during the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers concluded that child care workers in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic did not have increased odds of contracting SARS-CoV-2.
“The surveys showed that of the child care programs that continued to operate, 90% or more reported staff and children washed their hands frequently and indoor surfaces were disinfected daily.”
