The New York Chapter of the American College of Surgeons continues to mobilize efforts to assist in caring for New Yorkers and reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.

Recently the Chapter sent a letter to Governor Cuomo and shared with officials in the New York State Department of Health, New York Department of Financial Services, and the New York State legislature alerting them to the following items:

  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Interpretation of Immunity
  • Crisis Standards
  • Maintenance of Emergency Access to Critical Medical and Surgical Care as Essential Public Health Services
  • Liability Relief    
  • Volunteer Immunity
