Changes to Guidance on Groups

There have been two changes to the LA County Guidance for early care and education providers in the last two months. These changes loosen restrictions. They are:

  • There is no longer a maximum size for stable groups. Licensing requirements for group sizes should be followed.
  • In larger classrooms, dividers are no longer needed to keep groups apart.
  • Early care educators may work with multiple stable groups of children. It is okay to float educations between groups of children if needed.

Social distancing and face coverings are still required. Information on the current guidance to ensure social distancing (including ratios, mask wearing, and classroom/program space set-up) is shared here:
