COVID Precautions

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Select Sitters is dedicated to keeping our families and sitters safe. We have many extra precautions in place. We are asking all sitters to submit a COVID-19 precaution survey in order to assess their risk to the general public. We are asking all sitters to do the following: 


  • Wear a mask in public and follow all CDC guidelines. Sitters are also happy to wear a mask in your home upon request.

  • We are asking our sitters to fill out a social distancing survey regarding their home and work life, and we relay that information to the family upon request. 

  • We are recommending one consistent sitter who is practicing social distancing for all families who have consistent needs. However, there are a few families who only need a few hours a week, and it's not feasible for a sitter in that situation to live off of such a small amount of hours, so they likely would work for another family. We would ask the sitter to communicate this with both families and determine if everyone is comfortable (i.e. if both families are taking social distancing seriously, not working outside of the home).

  • For on-demand babysitting requests, we are trying to keep sitters consistent. However, preferred or usual sitters may not be available for random or last-minute requests. Some of our on-demand babysitters are working for multiple families. 

  • If anyone, client or sitter, has presented any symptoms at any time, we have asked them to stay home and keep us informed as well as if anyone in their home has had any symptoms.

  • We are currently only providing sick care for families who have provided proof of a negative COVID test.
