The Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development (GOECD) has developed a COVID-19 resource page on their website with links to information to help keep all Illinois residents, especially families, providers, and those who support children, informed.
The website lists updates and guidance from state agencies as well as a link for those looking for emergency child care.
In addition, the GOECD is providing these additional resources:
- Resources to Support Providers During the Pandemic includes health, business, home visiting resources, and more.
- COVID-19 Resources for Families with Young Children includes important resources to support families during the pandemic.
- Emotional Well-being Toolkit: Resources for Children, Families, & Caregivers includes information to manage stressors and promote wellness during these challenging times.
The Illinois Department of Public Health has a statewide COVID-19 hotline and website to answer any questions from the public or to report a suspected case: call 1-800-889-3931 or visit IDPH.illinois.gov. In addition, the Illinois Department of Health and Human Services has launched a new and updated website for both customers and providers.
