    Explanation
    If there is no suspected abuse or neglect, staff do not need to contact CYFD. However, if parents do not take any action after an initial threat and threats and/or attempts to harm continue, this can be seen as neglect and should be reported to CYFD. Therefore, the statement that "staff need not contact CYFD" is true.

Therefore, staff members are not required to seek approval from their administrators or directors before contacting the appropriate authorities, such as CYFD (Child, Youth, and Family Department), to report their concerns. This ensures that child abuse cases are promptly addressed and investigated, prioritizing the safety and well-being of the child involved.
