The Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies and organizations have developed two factsheets for child care facilities and schools. Both factsheets offer guidance on maintaining drinking water quality during and after long closures.

These factsheets build on HHSC’s efforts to provide steps to protect children’s health. More guidance on actions child care providers can take to reduce water stagnation during prolonged shut down of operations is on the EPA and CDC websites.
