In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, NYS passed amended legislation in September 2020 S8617B/A10832 requiring public employers to adopt a plan for operations in the event of a declared public health emergency involving a communicable disease. This training will provide an overview of the new requirements, provide a template of the plan and discuss its components including:
- Identification of essential positions
- Facilitation of remote work for non-essential positions
- Provision of personal protective equipment
- Protocols for supporting contact tracing
