Babysits Coronavirus (COVID-19) Policy

By Babysits, 2 min read


May 8th, 2020- At Babysits, we want to give our community the best support possible and do our part in keeping you updated on what the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic means for you as a babysitter or a parent.

As of May 8th, Scott Morrison has announced his 3-step action plan to reopen Australia. As part of stage 1 of this plan, Morrison has announced that families may have up to 5 guests per household. This means that babysitting may resume, granted that both parents and babysitters feel comfortable doing so. Please head to for updates on the virus and for information specific to your state.

However, we ask that you do take measures to protect the safety of yourself and others. For example, we recommend that parents have one regular babysitter rather than multiple babysitters. This way, you can better monitor the number of people entering your home and potentially spreading the virus.

Furthermore, we suggest that babysitters consider virtual babysitting and online homework help as viable babysitting options. For more information, please click here.

If you have further questions, you can contact our customer service and we'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
