SALS Board of Trustees Meeting

By   03/16/2020

The executive order issued by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and released March 7th, 2020 suspends a host of laws that help the state slow the spread and combat the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Suspension of law allowing the attendance of meeting telephonically or other similar service: Article 7 of the Public Officers Law, to the extent necessary to permit any public body to meet and take such actions authorized by the law without permitting in public in-person access to meeting and authorizing such meetings to be held remotely by conference call or similar service, provided that the public has the ability to view or listen to such proceeding and that such meetings are recorded and later transcribed

In accordance with the executive order the public can virtually attend our meeting using the GoToMeeting software or by telephone using the number below.

After the meeting concludes we will post a recording to our SALS YouTube page.

Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically.
