NY Chiropractic Offices Must Continue to Follow COVID Protocols

NY lifts most COVID restrictions effective 6/15/21; Healthcare settings, including chiropractic offices, must continue to follow previous, in place COVID protocols

As you are already aware, the CDC federal mask mandate remains in effect for pre-K-12 schools, public transit, and healthcare settings in NYS. 

On Tuesday, June 15, Governor Cuomo announced that New York has hit a 70% adult vaccination rate and that most COVID restricts were to be lifted immediately.

In response to inquires from our members, the NYSCA has reached out to local and regional healthcare agencies for further clarifications about guidelines that healthcare facilities must follow in their daily practice. We have been informed that all healthcare facilities must continue to follow previous protocols, which include mask mandates for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, social distancing, health screenings, temperature checks, and disinfecting protocols. 

Continued use of face masks and other COVID protocols is still required by New York State in your chiropractic practice.

For complete information, the CDC has supplied a summary of the restrictions and recommendations Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People | CDC (updated May 28, 2021). Additionally, the CDC has also provided Interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Healthcare Personnel During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic (updated 02/10/2021). 

The NYSCA will continue to monitor the information as it occurs and will update members on a timely basis.
