The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs. Pursuant to Executive Order 72 and Order of Public Health Emergency 9 issued December 31, 2020 children ages two through four are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings while indoors and outdoors, especially if children are in close contact. This will decrease the risk of COVID-19 transmission when children and caregivers are in close proximity.
This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, necessary due to a state of emergency health pandemic declared by the Governor of Virginia.
A renewal inspection was initiated on 01/12/21 and concluded on 01/14/2021. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 74 children present and 15 staff. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 5 children?s records and 2 staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance(s) with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A Description: Based on observation, it was determined that, while staff are supervising children, the facility did not ensure the care and protection of children.
Pursuant to the Governor?s Executive Order 72 and Order of Public Health Emergency 9, all children ages five and older and all staff are required to wear face coverings at child care programs while indoors and when outdoors and unable to maintain at least six feet of social distance. During the inspection on January 14th the following was observed:
1. In the school-age room, there were five children over the age of five observed not wearing any face coverings. In addition the children were not spaced at least 6 feet apart when sitting at tables during virtual learning. The program director confirmed, children are not being required to wear face coverings when sitting in front of their computers during virtual learning, regardless of spacing.
2. In the preschool room there was a group of children observed gathered on the floor without being socially distanced, while a staff member read a story to them. The staff member who was observed standing in front of the group of children, was not wearing a face covering.
Plan of Correction: The following corrective action was provided by the director during the exit interview.
The public school teachers have complained about not being able to see the children's faces during virtual learning so the center has not required them to wear them when seated at their computer. In addition there are only 2 electrical outlets in the school-age room which makes it difficult to accommodate the children's computers and socailly distance. The director will consult their safety manager and district manager to possible solutions.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
