Move on from COVID? Child care disruptions continue


              Chicago educator Tamisha Holifield spends time with her 2-year-old daughter Rian Holifield at Nichols Park, Thursday, Dec. 29, 2022, in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. When Holifield and her daughter had COVID-19 in May, the toddler had to miss 15 days of child care. Bouts of colds have followed in what Holifield described as a "constant whirlwind" of sickness that has been stressful both financially and emotionally. "It's a major inconvenience. But I'm a single parent, so I don't have a choice. If I drop the ball, the game is over," Holifield said. (AP Photo/Erin Hooley)
