Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb on Friday signed Executive Order 20-40 to increase child care options for families seeking support during virtual school days.

Executive Order 20-40 allows school corporations to contract with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club or the YMCA to operate school-age child care programs in locations, in addition to public school buildings to help families who need care while their students are engaged in e-learning.

The order also increases the number of school-aged children allowed to gather in a home on school days for e-learning from six to ten, without requiring the child care setting to be licensed.
