Gov. Mike DeWine has ordered child care centers to operate under a temporary pandemic child care license. The order requires each center to limit six children per room and parent interactions during drop-off and pick-up. The short-term license gives daycare centers a way to keep serving children whose parents are health care, safety, and essential workers, DeWine explained when he announced the new requirements earlier this week.
