How are you handling Coronavirus for your daycare?

I'm writing a letter to parents about my sick policy / Coronavirus at my daycare (6 kids total). I'm wondering should I state if a parent is sick, the child must stay home, so they can not spread the illness. I have parents that will have the flu and still drop off their kids. What did you say in your letters regarding the virus and illness policies?

    In my letter I asked families to notify me if anyone in their household had come in contact with anyone who tested positive. I would then ask that child to self quarantine for 14 days before returning. I posted this question just recently but have You thought of what a temp. daycare closure would look like? I’m in SF and I think we might be close to closing schools/daycares. I’m just not sure how to handle monthly payment. Reimburse for March/ Prorate April for the days I’m closed?

    Well I looked at it like this, if we has to closed down daycares for a month I am guessing I would have to wave the fees, it going to break me have you called around other daycares that has more kids than you ? you gave me something to think about, if I find out anything I let you know
