We require that clients agree that they will not ask nannies/care providers to do any of the following activities while on jobs. These guidelines were put into place before the stay-at-home order came into effect.:

  1. No playdates
  2. No community playgrounds
  3. No indoor play-spaces, pools, trampoline parks, etc.
  4. Continue frequent and thorough hand washing

We also ask that families make hand hygiene supplies readily available in their homes and clearly communicate where disinfectant products are stored so that caregivers can ensure surfaces are being cleaned frequently.

Yes. While the stay-at-home order is in effect in Maryland, DC, and VA, nannies fall under the category of “residential service” which is considered essential.

While nannies and babysitters are permitted to travel from one house to another and from one jurisdiction to another, the health and safety of our community is our priority. The decision to work is up to each care provider.
