A New York City law firm has just filed an administrative appeal to obtain the contracts between Fulgent Genetics and NYC Health + Hospitals for in-school COVID testing in NYC public schools. The firm filed a freedom of information request over 2 months ago. At that time, NYC H+H acknowledged the request and stated it would respond to the request in 20 days. However, it never responded to the original request or to follow-up emails and the documents remain secret. The contracts held by NYC H+H are public documents and should be easily and readily available to the public. NY Teachers For Choice is extremely pleased to hear this matter is moving forward and will continue to update our readers as we obtain more information on the proceedings.
