March 01, 2021 Repeal of Requirement to Report on COVID-19 Vaccinations and In-Person Student Instruction
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
We are writing to advise you of the repeal of Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.95 regarding mandatory reporting of in-person student instruction and COVID-19 vaccinations by P-12 public and non-public schools, school districts and teachers. On Friday, February 26, 2021, Governor Cuomo, through Executive Order 202.96,[*] repealed these reporting mandates. As a result, reporting of in-person student instruction and COVID-19 vaccinations by schools, school districts and teachers is no longer required. Executive Order 202.96 now mandates that, upon request, every local health department report the number of vaccinated teachers and other school staff members to the State Department of Health.
If you have any questions regarding Executive Order 202.96, please contact Lindsay Crocker or Michelle A. Mahabirsingh or any of our other education attorneys by calling 631-694-2300.
THIS MEMORANDUM IS MEANT TO ASSIST IN GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT LAW. IT IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS LEGAL ADVICE. THOSE WITH PARTICULAR QUESTIONS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL.
[*] Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.96 is available at: https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/no-20296-continuing-temporary-suspension-and-modification-laws-relating-disaster-emergency.
