A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention praised Head Start programs across the country for using mitigation strategies and other efforts to safely open programs for in-person services for infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children. 

The CDC highlighted Head Start centers’ efforts to keep children safe through symptom checks for staff and children, robust cleaning and disinfecting protocols, the availability of personal protective equipment and through various communication approaches in their communities.
