There are many limitations and factors from these documents that had to be taken into account while developing the school's plan. Please see below the links to the guidance:
1.) NYSED Guidance
2.) NYSDOH Guidance
Per the NYSDOH School Assessment and Compliance Unit:
At this time, the NYSDOH is not issuing exceptions for immunizations because of COVID-19.

Children entering or attending school in New York State, including summer school and distance learning, must comply with said requirements.
