Policy Spotlight: Children at Risk

Ensuring Child Safety During the Pandemic


This Policy Spotlight is the second in a series from IGPA’s Task Force on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic. These Policy Spotlights expand on the task force’s broader reports by drilling down on specific dimensions of the challenges facing Illinois and presenting tools or recommendations to help meet those challenges. This spotlight is focused on the plummet in reporting of suspected cases of child abuse and neglect since Illinois’ stay-at-home order went into effect in March 2020.
