Daycare Sampling in the Age of COVID-19
Since 2009, Handit2 has executed over 100 successful sampling campaigns via daycares and preschools, distributing over 20 million samples via this channel. To say that childcare facilities are important to our business would be an understatement! While many daycares were closed from March to May 2020 (and some closed permanently), we are pleased to report that most daycares nationwide are open right now, with some local exceptions in high risk areas, and with some operating under new state-imposed group size limitations. In fact, Handit2 is currently enrolling multiple daycare & preschool sampling programs for this fall.
