COVID-19 Information

Our top priority at ASI is the health, well-being, and safety of our students, individuals and staff. We have closely monitored the COVID-19 pandemic, state guidance and regulations, and will continue to do so as restrictions are lifted. Governor Cuomo has announced that the state of emergency that was in effect during the COVID-19 public health emergency has come to an end.  And while this does not mean that COVID-19 is no longer a threat, it does mean that many of the emergency measures issued by the state and its agencies, including OPWDD, are no longer in effect. Therefore, as of July 7, 2021, the agency’s Re-Opening and Response Plan is no longer in effect.
