ASHLAND, Neb. (WOWT) - The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services issued an executive order earlier this week that closed the doors of an Ashland day care.

Carrie Jacobs, owner of Mama J’s child care center, located at 2342 Silver St. in Ashland, had her license revoked by the state on Tuesday.

The order has three items redacted, but notes that “an emergency exists requiring immediate action to protect the physical well-being and safety of a child or children in the care of Mama J’s, Carrie Jacobs, and/or Mama J’s LLC.”

Thursday’s news comes about a month after another Omaha daycare, Kidz of the Future 2, was ordered closed after an infant died in their care.

A spokesman for DHHS said the agency was unable to comment any further about the incident while the matter is still pending.

According to DHHS documentation of the business license, the daycare has a capacity of 45 and had been authorized to care for children ages 6 weeks to 13 years.
