Child Protective Services are feeling the effects of Covid-19: -Grandparents are unable to care for a relative because of particular risks to serious complications of Covid-19 – Parents are unable to comply with required classes are part of their service plan because the classes have been put on hold due to the risk of congregation in groups. – Face-to-face visits have been limited in an effort to curb the spread of the disease – Older foster parents are asking for children to be removed from their homes based on the risk of contracting Covid-19; also, with schools and other providers currently closed, providing care 24/7 is a bigger burden than some can carry.
