DOH has issued a DAL which includes required survey information related to the States Minimum Wage increase from January 1, 2020 through January 1, 2021. Note: NYC Region (as defined in the DAL) is not required to complete the survey as the statutory minimum wage of $15/hour has been reached. 

A separate notification for Assisted Living Providers is forthcoming from DOH. We will alert members accordingly.

Below is the notification sent to Nursing Home Providers:
