Throughout the pandemic, Rainbow adhered to all COVID-19 restrictions and regulations as documented by the CDC and the MA Department of Early Education and Care. All staff and children followed social distancing, wearing masks, and frequent hand washing. Only Rainbow staff were allowed in the building until EEC lifted the restrictions at the end of April 2021.

• Practice social physical distancing;

• Promote frequent hand washing;

• Isolate sick or symptomatic individuals;

• Continue routine and targeted deep cleaning of Rainbow’s facilities;

• Mask mandate will continue to be enforced for adults and children while at Rainbow as long as it is recommended by the CDC and MA Department of Early Education and Care.
