Message From The Center and Dr. Marino, NYSCSH Medical Director Consultant

  • Recommendations, guidelines and the knowledge-base itself regarding COVID-19 is changing rapidly. Information shared by agencies and experts can be contradictory and often does not provide detailed guidance for all aspects of school operations.  As School Medical Directors, our ability to remain flexible will be critical in the coming months as we continue to provide consultation and leadership to our school communities. Please let us know how we can support you. Email us at or use the Online Assistance Form.
