A West Allis KinderCare is closing for three days after positive diagnoses of COVID-19 at the day care facility.

A KinderCare spokesperson said the 61st Street KinderCare center will be closed for the next three days to allow for deep cleaning.

"The health and safety of our children, families and staff is always our top priority. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve developed enhanced health and safety measures in partnership with the CDC and a panel of medical experts to ensure our centers remain as clean and safe as possible," said a KinderCare spokesperson. "We’ll also use that time to retrain our staff on our health and safety protocols to ensure we’re delivering against the highest standards possible."

The infant room at the center will be closed until July 17.
