They are looking for help Monday to Friday, from 2-6 PM, with some flexibility 1-2 nights/week with notice.

Covid: They take Covid very seriously and are not going out to dinner or socializing. Mom is back in office, dad at home, and mom gets tested every two weeks, while the girls tested every week. They have strong level of confidence that family is healthy as a result. They wear masks when outside their home, have no indoor gatherings, and are comfortable with having their sitter unmasked in their home. Playdate activity if any is always outside, and they do not plan to ever have a pod where indoor activities take place. They would like a babysitter who is also being safe, and they trust their judgement. They would also like their babysitter to get tested before starting. They are ok with public transportation and can provide N95 masks.
