With the regular operation of child care facilities, the admission children contractually cared for based on SGB VIII takes place. Generally, the frame regulations of the Hessian Child and Youth Welfare Law apply. However, the regular operation takes place within pandemic conditions. 

The hygiene plans of the childcare facilities are to be adapted to the current conditions. The federal state of Hesse presents hygiene recommendations adapted to the contained occurence of infection (available in German only, see download box below). 


As before the corona pandemic, children who are obviously sick must not be brought to the childcare facilities. Generally, parents have to assess whether their child is sick. If children are brought to the facility and are obviously sick or if children get sick during their stay in the facility, the personal can initiate the pick-up by the parents. 

You can find a flyer regarding the handling of disease and cold symptoms among children in the download box below (in German only).
