NYS Health and Essential Rights (HERO) Act

Dear Staff and Faculty colleagues,

We are required by New York State to provide information regarding the Health and Essential Rights (HERO) Act, which mandates new health and safety protections in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The university has established a safety plan, as well as virtual training in accordance with the HERO Act. 

The purpose of the safety plan is to protect employees against exposure and disease during an airborne infectious disease outbreak such as COVID-19. Many components of this plan reflect the COVID-19 health and safety protocols implemented by The New School for our safe return to campus this fall. All employees are encouraged to review and become familiar with this information.

Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with questions.
