Staff members may be required to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test prior to the first day of in-school instruction, as permitted by applicable law.
- Contact Tracing: Equality will work with the NYS Department of Health and local department of health centers to alert them when a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19.
