Texas reinstates COVID-19 safety rules for child care centers to prevent 'imminent peril to public health'
Texas is reinstating a series of COVID-related safety measures for child care centers that were repealed earlier this month, the Texas Tribune reports:
"The newest emergency rules, published Thursday, include requiring child care centers to check temperatures of staff and students each day, have parents drop students off outside and not serve family style meals. State health officials said the immediate adoption of the rules was necessary to prevent 'imminent peril to the public health, safety, and welfare of the state.'"
The change comes as the governor issued an executive order closing bars and reducing restaurant capacity in the face of record-high new cases and hospitalizations.
