Moody Early Childhood Center will be closed this week over concerns that too many staff members are in quarantine to effectively run the program, according to a statement.

The center closed Monday and will reopen Jan. 19, according to the statement.

Because cases of COVID-19 are rising in Galveston County, staff members and students are coming into contact with infected people, according to the statement.

The center's management is worried there won’t be enough staff to meet its standards of care, officials said.

While the center is closed, crews will be cleaning and sanitizing the facility, according to the center management.

Parents won't be charged tuition for the week.

Moody Early Childhood Center has been following U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and local guidelines, officials said.

People with questions can call 409-761-6930.
