TAMPA, Fla. — Several YMCA locations in the Tampa Bay area are offering all-day relief child care for healthcare and emergency response workers beginning on Monday.

The YMCA previously announced the closure of all Tampa Bay area locations and said the locations would be transitioning into relief care.

The full day care starts at 7 a.m. and goes until 6 p.m. at 11 locations. It costs $125 for the week, but the YMCA says no child will be turned away due to inability to pay and instructed parents to ask about financial aid.

The relief weeks will take place March 23 - March 27, March 30 - April 3, April 6 - April 10 and April 13 - April 15.

The YMCA asks that all children be dressed in athletic clothing, including sneakers. The company says the number of staff and children present during each shift will be limited to allow social distancing.

"Our Y staff will intentionally teach and encourage good hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette and follow a strict sick child/staff policy. For the safety and well-being of others in the program, those who are running a temperature of 100.4+ degrees cannot attend," the website said.
