NYS COVID Policies

By March 20, 2020 No Comments

The NYS Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems currently has 3 policy statements to aid in COVID preparedness/responses.  The 3 policies are as follows:

  • 20-02 COVID-19 EMS Practitioner Guidance
  • 20-03 COVID-19 County Emergency Manager, County EMS Coordinator, and PSAP Guidance
  • 20-05 COVID-19 Response to Respiratory Emergencies (just released)

These policies can change frequently.  It is important to visit the Bureau’s policy page routinely to ensure you have the most up-to-date version of each policy.
