A short-term, unregistered substitute provider may be allowed to take over care for the registered provider for up to 12 hours per week, not to exceed 52 hours in a year, for unexpected situations such as a family emergency, provider illness or doctor appointments. Planned events such as vacations and planned medical leaves are not covered under this section; care during these events must be provided by a registered provider or a registered helper. The provider is required to notify the health department and day care parents when a substitute provider has been utilized. The notification shall occur within 24 hours at the latest under any circumstances. All visitors are to be under the direct supervision of a registered provider.
