    Client Alert: New York State Now Follows CDC Guidelines for COVID-19-Related Quarantine

    As you may know, the CDC recently updated its guidelines regarding COVID-19 exposure to eliminate the quarantine requirement after close contact with someone who has COVID-19 for all individuals regardless of vaccination status. While New York initially declined to adopt this revised guidance, as of today, September 14, 2022, the New York State Department of Health is following suit. As a result, individuals in New York who have been exposed to COVID-19 but are not exhibiting symptoms do not need to quarantine unless they develop symptoms or test positive.

    Client Alert: NYS Relaxes Mask Mandate Starting Tomorrow

    Governor Hochul has announced that effective tomorrow, February 10, 2022, businesses in NYS no longer need to require a “fully vaccinated environment” in order to allow individuals to go maskless.  As you are probably aware, the current rule is that either everyone be fully vaccinated or everyone (regardless of vaccination status) has to wear a mask.  Starting tomorrow, only unvaccinated individuals must wear a mask indoors.
