  • 5/19: Follow Up on New Health Condition Appearing in NYC Children

    Dear PPA Families,

    Following up on last week's letter concerning the new health condition appearing in children in New York City and elsewhere, we are providing you with additional information through a Fact Sheet from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health)

    Per NYC Health, this condition has been renamed Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C)—formerly Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (PMIS). The condition is rare and it is potentially life-threatening, so it is important that you know its signs and symptoms.

    NYC Health’s Fact Sheet conveys new information about the syndrome, its symptoms, when to seek medical help, treatments, and preventative steps. Because MIS-C is associated with COVID-19, acting to keep your child from being exposed to COVID-19 continues to be essential.

    Attached, you will also find Chancellor Carranza's updated letter on the subject.

    Only the best wishes,

    PPA Admin and Staff
