Peterborough to open emergency shelter, re-open select daycares for essential workers amid COVID-19 crisis

Peterborough Public Health says some daycares in the city will be re-opening to support essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Rosana Salvaterra, medical officer of health, mentioned the daycares during Wednesday’s media briefing updating the region on the fight against COVID-19.

Details on which daycares will re-open have yet to be determined. However, Salvaterra said they will be for children of essential workers, such as healthcare workers, only.

The City of Peterborough closed its daycare facilities on March 17. At the time, they were expected to remain closed until March 31.

“Our role will be to ensure that infection control measures will be followed,” said Salvaterra.
