Access available child care: For individuals who are working but do not fall under the category of essential employees as defined by One Utah Child Care, many Utah child care programs remain open and available with safety protocols in place to protect both the staff and children from the spread of COVID-19. Parents can find available providers at careaboutchildcare.utah.gov.
