Bloomington child care service temporarily shuts down after worker tests positive for COVID-19


BLOOMINGTON (WEEK) - A Twin-Cities child care service will reopen next week after an employee tested positive for the coronavirus.

YWCA McLean County's Young Wonders program, an emergency child care provider, is closed this week.

Monday's reopening marks the end of a 14 day quarantine since the last day the employee was at work, according to a statement from YWCA McLean County.

"During the closure, the building will continue to be professionally cleaned, ventilated and sanitized. All those who came in to contact with the employee have been notified personally," the YWCA said.

"The health and safety of the families we serve, as well as that of our employees, is of utmost importance," the statement said.

The McLean County Health Department reported Tuesday there were 62 confirmed COVID-19 cases, by far the most of any county in our viewing area.
