At Nanny In The City, we recognize the role we play in your homes and your lives. The health and well-being of our nannies and our clients is our top priority. As the situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we are tracking the information provided by public health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Utilizing their guidance, we are taking precautions to protect our staff, nannies and families. This is a rapidly changing situation that is impacting countries, states and cities differently.
Like most other places, our staff at Nanny In The City is working remotely, and we are finding new ways to be in community, to be together, and to uphold one another and our work.
Our hearts are breaking as we witness the effects of the recent tornado and the pandemic on our communities. We are holding them much in our hearts and minds. We are holding parents and nannies at home with their kids, managing the tension between supporting their children’s learning and just wanting to make sure they feel safe and loved in this unprecedented time.
We are also holding parents and nannies whose job relationships may be irreparably altered, and whoare anxious about what this means for their job-seeking process and their futures.
It may be that social distancing isn’t quite the right frame for what we need right now. We certainly need physical distancing! But we also need to imagine and act from places of social closeness and care.
We hope that you and your loved ones are well, and we are more committed than ever to do our work in a way that supports nannies, families, and our community to keep you covered.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
We are making decisions based on the most recent information provided by the CDC, WHO, and local public health agencies and government officials, while keeping the health and safety of our nannies and families in mind. Our role at Nanny in the City right now is meeting the needs of families that occupation qualifies under essential.

We are asking nannies to follow the CDC recommendations:
Even with these safety guidelines in place, COVID-19 is a rapidly spreading virus and we cannot guarantee that you will not contract it if you have contact with others, including in-home caregivers. In order to protect the health and safety of our caregivers, we will be unable to provide care to households in the following circumstances:
If a member of the household has been diagnosed with COVID-19, they must be medically cleared before we are able to resume care. The law appears to be evolving, and we are committed to providing parents and nannies the best information possible so they can make informed decisions.
Nanny In The City is providing an informational service only and is not offering legal advice. We encourage you to seek your own independent legal advice. You can make your own decisions relating to your health and we encourage you to comply with all Stay at Home orders, as well as maintaining safe social distancing. Our team is closely monitoring local, state and federal government restrictions and guidelines that affect nannies and nanny employers.
Nanny In The City will continue to abide by all government regulations and CDC guidelines as things evolve over the coming days, weeks, and months. We are committed to keeping our clients and nannies up to date and informed, and providing them with continued support. If you have never considered hiring a nanny until now and don’t know where to start, we will guide you every step of the way. Under our watch this process should relieve your stress, not add to it. Stay healthy, stay safe and stay positive – we’re here to help you get through this and keep you covered!
