Black Hawk County COVID-19 Childcare Response Team - Assessment of Childcare Need
Schools, community organizations, and employers are mobilizing to support our important medical personnel and first responders, to ensure our healthcare system is strong and able to respond to the emerging issue of COVID-19.
The purpose of this form is to identify the current and anticipated childcare needs of ESSENTIAL PERSONNEL, which includes hospital staff, healthcare providers, direct care staff (i.e. nursing homes, etc), government personnel essential to infrastructure (public safety, public health, child protection services, etc), emergency responders, and employees in food supply (grocery, restaurant, etc). If you currently have or believe you could have childcare needs in the coming weeks, please fill out the information below.
Please consider this an initial intake that will help us evaluate the need and determine how to connect needs with the resources we have available in our community.
