REDDING, Calif. - With many school districts closed because of coronavirus concerns, parents are scrambling to figure out who can watch their kids.

The Shasta Family YMCA is offering an emergency day camp for kids of health care workers, law enforcement, first responders, and other essential workers.

The YMCA is limiting the number of people entering, even parents unless it’s a special circumstance.

“We have been hearing that this such a relief and it’s such a lifesaver,” said Nicole Burruss, Senior Director of Finance and Operations at the YMCA.

The YMCA says they can take in 36 kids into their day camp. But the kids will be separated into smaller groups to make sure it’s not over the 10 person limit.

The organization says they plan to keep the emergency day camp up and running for as long as possible.
