We share a deep concern for the spread of Coronavirus and the safety of caregivers and families. UrbanSitter’s Trust and Safety team has prioritized Coronavirus prevention efforts and we’re asking our members to be totally transparent with each other when it comes to their health.
We know that in some areas across the U.S. childcare providers are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. To find out the eligibility requirements to receive the vaccine in your area, please take a moment to access your county’s government website for specific instructions. If you have additional questions about your specific circumstances, we recommend calling 311 or your city’s information center directly.
Families and caregivers can also add a COVID-19 vaccine badge to their UrbanSitter profile to show that they’ve received the vaccine. To add your badge, navigate to your profile screen on a web browser (apps coming soon!), scroll to the COVID-19 Vaccine section, click edit, select the boxes to agree to the terms, and click save. Your badge will now be added to your profile!
Profiles with the COVID-19 vaccine badge have:
- Certified that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine and are willing to provide proof of a current COVID-19 vaccine if requested by a member of the UrbanSitter platform.
- Given consent for UrbanSitter to display that they are willing to provide proof of a current COVID-19 vaccine on their profile.
To see if a family has the COVID-19 vaccine badge, be sure to click their profile photo to see their full profile!
Families and sitters may ask each other if they're willing to provide proof of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. We recommend that members follow CDC guidelines if they have received the vaccine. The CDC also has information regarding facts about COVID-19 vaccines.
Please note that UrbanSitter does not employ caregivers and is unable to provide verification of a caregiver's status as a childcare provider. For more information, please feel free to reference our Terms of Service.
