Updated Family Pandemic Policy 12.10.20

DCDC has updated its Family Pandemic Policy to reflect current changes to the PA DOH’s Updated Quarantine Recommendations for Persons Exposed to COVID-19.  The updated information in the document contains links to PA DOH’s full health alert. Below is the relevant information for families, as applicable from the 12/4/20 Health Alert:

DOH is providing options to shorten quarantine for contacts of persons with SARS-CoV-2
infection. The most protective recommended quarantine period remains at 14 days post
exposure.
Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing if no symptoms have been reported during
daily monitoring.
• When testing resources are sufficient, quarantine can end after day 7 if a diagnostic
specimen (e.g., RT-PCR, antigen) tests negative and is collected on day 5 or thereafter and
the person remains asymptomatic.
• Quarantine may not be further shortened beyond the end of day 7.
• Testing of symptomatic persons seeking evaluation for infection must be prioritized over
testing for early discontinuation of quarantine.
• These updated recommendations are for the community at large and do not apply to
healthcare settings.
• If you have questions about this guidance, please call your local health department or 1-
877-PA-HEALTH (1-877-724-3258).

DCDC Receives Scholarship Monies from FNB

THANKS FNB!!

Bryan Holmes, President/CEO of FNB Bank presents Executive Director of DCDC, Diana Dixon with a check for $4,000 for Pre-K Scholarships. Danville Child Development Center recently received $4,000 from FNB Bank in Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) funding so that area families can afford to send their children to a quality early education program.

DCDC utilizes these funds to provide early education opportunities to preschool aged children whose families may not have the means to provide them with high quality experiences to prepare them for kindergarten.

The EITC program provides tax credits to eligible businesses that contribute to an approved scholarship organization, an Educational Improvement Organization or a pre-kindergarten scholarship organization. Danville Child Development Center is approved by the state Department of Community and Economic Development as a pre-k scholarship organization.
