Mr. Jackson,
I have attached a copy of the plan for reopening and operating during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
As far as bonding and insurance information to and from the responsible parties to NYS DOH, NYSED and the county or Local health Dept
there is no record responsive to the request for bonding or insurance specific to the responsible party.
It appears your request for any correspondence between the designated responsible party and SED, DOH and the local health department is for such correspondence related to the person performing the duties of responsible party. This will require additional review to determine what records, if any, may exist in response to that request. I currently anticipate that such a review will take at least another twenty work days.
Sincerely,
Kelly Zurakowski

From: Jackson Parker
