UPDATE 6: CORONAVIRUS BY MONDAY, MARCH 16, 2020, STATUS 7:45 PM
We have just received new information and instructions from the Education Department of the Canton of Basel-Stadt.
Our daycare centers in the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft will continue to be open only to healthy children of parents who work in health professions or have other compulsory work obligations and who are unable to organize childcare elsewhere.
The changes for the Canton of Basel-Stadt are:
- From now on, the children of parents who are in need of urgent care will only be looked after in one location. School children in the Kita will be cared for exclusively in the Kita and will not additionally attend the offers of the schools.
- Parents from health care professions who register additional care needs due to the exceptional situation will be considered. The Familycare daycare centers provide these parents with the greatest flexibility in meeting their additional care needs.
There are no changes for the Canton of Basel-Landschaft at present.
The daycare centers will continue to be open only to healthy children of parents who work in healthcare professions or have other mandatory work obligations and are unable to organize childcare elsewhere.
We will notify you as soon as we have more information and thank you for your understanding and solidarity in this extraordinary situation.
