With many Bay Area schools closed till the end of the schoolyear, many frontline and essential workers are scrambling to find childcare. But some organizations, such as the YMCA of Silicon Valley, are now lending a hand to those who are busy fighting the novel coronavirus on the frontlines.
The YMCA is pivoting some of its facilities to serve as day camps where parents can drop off their children before they head into work. Students have been split up into multiple classrooms and will stay within the same group for the foreseeable future to limit potential exposure to COVID-19. Social distancing is also required.
