NYS Dept. of Health issues NEW mandates for school district employees to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination OR submit to weekly testing
The New York State Department of Health (DOH) released a COVID-19 mandate on September 2, 2021 that all employees are required to have testing performed at least once a week OR opt-out of the new testing protocols by submitting proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
We are pleased to report that our Nyack Bargaining Units had agreed to these protocols through Board-approved Memorandums of Agreements prior to the release of these DOH guidelines. The District is moving forward accordingly.
Thank you to our staff and families for their support in maintaining safety as a priority. This community partnership is to protect everyone’s health and safety by preventing the resurgence of COVID-19 cases and in particular, the COVID-19 Delta variant.
A robo call, email and text message was sent to our families regarding this update on Friday, September 3rd.
