In early January, in cooperation with Rockland County Department of Health, the East Ramapo Central School District distributed free CareStart COVID-19 Antigen Home Tests to local families. The printed expiration date on many of the kits reads "EXP JAN 2022." However, according to manufacturer AccessBio, the FDA has extended the shelf-life of these CareStart COVID-19 Antigen Home Tests.
Our district is aware of Monday's court ruling related to the New York State mask mandate. Late last night, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) appealed the Nassau County Supreme Court decision, which results in an automatic stay, that unambiguously restores the mask mandate until such time that an appellate court issues a further ruling. Therefore, schools in New York State must continue to follow the existing mask rule.
