NY Senate Republican Leader to Hochul; Update State Guidance on COVID-19


New York State Senate Republican Leader Rob Ortt wrote a letter to the governor calling on Hochul to update the state’s guidance and emergency regulations on COVID-19 following an updated CDC guidance:

“As you may know, the CDC recently updated its guidance to better reflect the progress made after understanding and combating the COVID-19 virus. Most notably, the CDC now recommends that those exposed to COVID-19 are no longer required to quarantine, regardless of vaccination status. Additionally, the CDC has also removed prior recommendations for social distancing and test-to-stay procedures in K through 12 schools and early childhood programs. Per the CDC, the new guidelines ‘help us to move to a point where COVID-19 no longer severely disrupts our daily lives..”

Senator Ortt urged Hochul to release state guidelines in line with the CDC changes. This calling comes after Governor Hochul extended the COVID-19 state of emergency earlier this week, which has been in effect for almost a year.
