Cornerstone Center for Early Learning (CCEL) puts the health and safety of children, families and staff first. We continue to stay apprised of the latest information regarding the COVID19 virus through the St. Louis City Health Department, Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). CCEL will use guidelines, recommendations and regulations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and St. Louis City Health Department to establish best practices to remain open during the COVID 19 pandemic. Constant communication between these organizations is required to have the most up-to-date information to make informed decisions around the operation of programming.

This information will be used in conjunction with the CDC’s guidance for programs that remain open and their guidance for administrators of child care programs and K-12 schools. This guidance does not supersede applicable federal, state, and local laws and policies for child care programs.
