The three guiding values of child welfare services are safety, permanency, and well-being. Maintaining child safety is essential, and even the circumstances of a pandemic should not undermine the vital work of supporting permanency and well-being for children and their families. Child welfare systems have the capacity to innovate during crises, and the challenges of the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic offer an opportunity to develop new ways to support families. The American Academy of Pediatrics released guidance for children and families involved with the child welfare system during the COVID-19 Pandemic. You can find the guidance here.
