50 children may have been exposed to COVID-19 at Amarillo daycare


Friday morning, City of Amarillo’s Public Health Director, Casie Stoughton, confirmed that 50 children may have been exposed to COVID-19 at an Amarillo daycare.

A child enrolled at Imagination Station Child Development Center has tested positive for COVID-19. All of the exposed children have been placed under quarantine by the City of Amarillo until at least April 10.

The daycare said it will comply with public health guidelines and plans to reopen next week.

"We will do a floor-wall-ceiling and every thing in between cleaning. We will re-open Monday morning to the families who have not been quarantined by the Public Health Department.

"Being essential workers isn’t an easy job. We are placed on the frontlines with nothing more than hand sanitizer and prayers.

"Also with being an essential worker we risk being the ones with the initial exposure. We have all made sacrifices for each other because when you feel a calling on your life you don’t back down in the face of adversity.

"This virus will challenge us and test our community but now is the time to show each other grace and compassion as we will all be effected by this sooner or later. We just happened to be the sooner," officials with Imagination Station Child Development Center said in a statement.
