The NERUCA Government Affairs Committee is pleased to announce that our recent efforts regarding New York State Executive Order 202.61 has resulted in an easing of the order’s time constraint for reporting of COVID-19 and Influenza test results.
Executive Order 202.72, issued by Governor Andrew Cuomo late last Tuesday, pushes the requirement to report results to NYS-DOH back, from 3 hours to 24 hours. Executive Order 202.61, detailing several new reporting requirements was issued on September 9th and made known to NERUCA on September 21st.
Though in agreement with the basic principles underlying the order, NERUCA and the Government Affairs Committee has been and continues to work with various partners within the state’s health care community, actively engaged in lobbying the Executive and DOH as well as the Legislature, as we seek to alter several of the order’s extremely burdensome requirements.
