UPDATE: Daily COVID-19 Health Screening No Longer Required in New York

By Michael L. Dodd, Partner and PIA Association Counsel, Ferrara Fiorenza PC

We reported last week that New York still required private sector employers to complete daily COVID-19 health screening questionnaires.  This was made clear by the fact that the State amended its New York Forward guidelines regarding these questionnaires on June 8, 2021.  However, Governor Cuomo announced yesterday (i.e., June 15, 2021) that the New York Forward industry-specific guidelines, including health screening and contact information for tracing, are “now optional” for these employers.   Accordingly, private sector employers in New York are no longer required to have employees and visitors complete the daily questionnaires.
