The NY Hero Act has been signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo! This act directs the NYS Departments of Labor and Health to create enforceable health and safety requirements to prevent airborne infectious diseases in the workplace. As more employees return to the office in the wake of Covid-19, we have to look towards the future. How can we control future infectious diseases that appear as we become an increasingly urban and globalized society? What have we learned from the past year and a half? How can we prevent this from happening again in the future? And if it does happen again, how do we prevent it from taking over our lives?
