Update for Tuesday, June 16
- In yesterday’s press conference, Governor Andrew Cuomo said hospitals and group homes will be allowed to have visitors enter their facilities. The facilities must still follow social distancing guidelines, and it is up to the discretion of the facility to determine if visitations will be allowed. The facilities must notify the state they intended to allow visitors prior to allowing visitations.
- Governor Cuomo also clarified that nursing homes are not included in the group home decision. The state is currently studying data from the hospital pilot program, and a determination on what restrictions can be eased on nursing homes will be made at a later date.
- The state has officially prohibited overnight children’s camps from operating this season in New York State. The statement from the State Health Commissioner can be found HERE.
