Ohio COVID-19 Child Care Study

In partnership with the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services supported the Ohio COVID-19 Child Care Study. The study was designed to better understand how to lower the spread of COVID-19 and lessen the impact of COVID-19 among families and staff affiliated with child care programs in the state.

The multidisciplinary study team was led by researchers from Case Western Reserve University with expertise in child health and wellbeing, environmental health, epidemiology, and infectious disease management and control. The 10 counties in Ohio that were selected to participate account for two-thirds of all licensed Type A, B, and child care programs in Ohio. The participating counties included: Ashtabula, Butler, Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Licking, Lucas, Montgomery, Stark, and Summit. 

Please visit the Ohio COVID-19 Child Care Study website to learn more about the study team and the key activities. If you are interested in learning about additional studies related to COVID-19, please email the study team at covidchildcarestudy@case.edu.

Study findings including the Ohio COVID-19 Child Care Study Data Brief and the Ohio COVID-19 Child Care Study Press Release are available on the study website.
