INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WFIE) -The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration is offering additional guidance to parents and child care providers related to COVID-19.
According to the news release, families who need help finding or paying for care can contact Brighter Futures Indiana at 800-299-1627 to speak to a referral specialist.
Earlier this week, FSSA offered guidance that children who are out of school due to possible contact with a positive case should observe social isolation and be at home.
FSSA says they strongly recommend caregivers for these kids not to be older than 65, have a chronic disease or be in an immunosuppressed state.
The news release states this guidance does not apply to all kids whose schools are closing as a precaution.
