The NYS Office of Attorney General's Charities Bureau has issued Guidance for Conducting Virtual Meetings of Members of New York Not-for-Profit Corporations. As many of our ambulance, ALSFR and BLSFR services are not for profit based organizations, please review the guidance.
EMS agencies are always encouraged to review guidance like this with their own legal counsel.
We also continue to recommend NFP EMS agencies consider looking into whether or not the NYS Council of Nonprofits, Inc. could be helpful to them as it has been to several Regional EMS Program Agencies.

Emergency Use Authorization for Non-NIOSH-Approved Disposable Filtering Facepiece Respirators Manufactured in China
(May 7, 2020), the FDA reissued the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for Non-NIOSH-Approved Disposable Filtering Facepiece Respirators Manufactured in China to revise one of the eligibility criteria – the criterion for authorization of respirators based on review of test reports from recognized independent test laboratories submitted to the FDA by the manufacturer or importer – and accordingly removed from Appendix A the respirators that had been authorized under that criterion, regardless of whether they passed or failed the NIOSH testing.
