ALBION – Child care providers who are licensed and remain open in Orleans and Genesee counties have been provided with hand sanitizer from the state.

The Child Care Resource and Referral through Community Action of Orleans and Genesee teamed up with the state Office of Children and Family Services on April 2 to distribute gallons of NYS Clean Hand Sanitizer to licensed child care programs that are still open and caring for children both counties.

Each provider was given a liquid base hand sanitizer to use in their program. This is different than gel-based sanitizer and is best used in a spray bottle. One spray covers adult hands and half spray covers children.

Taryn Moyle, CCR&R Program Manager, was present with John Rothrock, OCFS Fire and Safety Representative, and Toni Medrano-Bouldin, OCFS Buffalo Regional Office Child Care Licensor, as they conducted a drive-through at Community Action’s Albion and Batavia locations. OCFS held similar events throughout the state in the first week of April for active child care programs.
