BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Erie County Health Commissioner Dr. Gale Burstein is scheduled to roll out the county’s test-to-stay policy to superintendents and principals on Wednesday during a virtual meeting. Burstein said Tuesday the health department finalized their policy on Monday and was preparing to proportion it with school officials.
Two days before Christmas, the New York State Department of Health empowered local health officials to draft test-to-stay practices. The protocol is set up to allow unvaccinated and asymptomatic PreK-12 students stay in the classroom if they were exposed to COVID-19 in school, so long as they continue to test negative.
