Information for Child Care Providers - Responding to COVID19
Executive Order 20-20 directs Minnesotans to Stay at Home. It does not direct child care providers to close. Caregivers and child care providers are expressly listed as critical sector exemptions.
As part of their COVID-19 Response Supplemental Budget proposal, Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan proposed $30 million in funding for emergency grants for licensed child care providers serving essential workers during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
