Airborne Infectious Disease Exposure Prevention Plan

Released: 9/3/2021 6:00:00 AM

Good afternoon everyone,

The New York State HERO act requires organizations to develop a plan to protect employees against exposure and disease during an airborne infectious disease outbreak. The VNA has developed a plan to meet the requirements of the NYS HERO Act which includes all of the processes we have already put in place during COVID.

In the event of an outbreak the VNA will be notified by New York State to activate our plan. The plan is attached here for your convenience.

Please contact Lisa Buckley at 716-630-8632 with any questions.

Thank you,
Lisa Buckley
Director of Quality Improvement
