The new guidance from the Center for Disease Control that shortens the amount of time an individual must quarantine following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis has not been fully adopted by New York state. As such, the New York Credit Union Association is advising credit unions to continue following the same quarantine measures that the state has had in place since before Dec. 24.
While the New York Department of Health did release new guidance on Dec. 24 based on the updated CDC guidelines, financial services are not included among the “critical workforce” industries outlined in the updated NYDOH guidelines.
New York’s credit unions should continue following the state’s quarantine guidance released by the NYDOH prior to Dec. 24, as well as any applicable county-level guidance. New York state generally requires individuals who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to quarantine for a minimum of 10 days from the onset of symptoms.
The Association will continue to monitor the fluid nature of the quarantine measures and update credit unions when appropriate.
