On June 23, 2021, Governor Cuomo announced that the State-of-Emergency in New York declared as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic ends June 24, 2021. Health care providers who are operating pursuant to any of the Executive Orders that are still in place will need to begin to modify operations to be consistent with the laws that were in place prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, subject to any guidance that may be published by the applicable agencies. Health care providers should be monitoring agency guidance regarding topics such as COVID testing and vaccination, and telehealth, including who may provide such services going forward, where such services can be provided and under what circumstances. Governor Cuomo’s announcement does not affect any Federal mandates that may be in effect.
