NOTEBOOK – ONE GOOD READ: Parents returning to the office may face struggles as day cares and schools close programming because of the delta variant


Many parents may feel like they’re experiencing deja vu. With cases of the delta variant of COVID-19 increasing, some day cares, camps and schools across the country are beginning to close, leaving parents with young children struggling to balance work and home. In this story, the Washington Post explores how this reversal is coming as many employers are beginning to implement their return-to-work plans. It also looks at how this trend is having the biggest effect on working moms, who were already the hardest hit during the pandemic, with some economists warning that we could be on the verge of a second wave of women dropping out of the workforce if the delta variant can’t be stopped. Just last week Des Moines Public Schools closed two of its MetroKids day care programs because people affiliated with it tested positive. The district also has announced it will offer online classes for elementary students this school year.
