(St. Paul, MN)  —  Minnesota is no longer requiring licensed child care providers to quarantine children and staff who come in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.  Instead, the state’s Department of Human Services says that license holders are strongly encouraged to follow state or federal guidance on quarantining.  Child care providers will still be required to report positive COVID cases among children or staff to state health officials and isolate anyone who has tested positive for the virus.
