Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill in September 2011 that requires students who may have suffered a concussion in a school sport or gym class to be sidelined for at least 24 hours.
The concussion legislation, which took effect July 1, 2012, seeks to end the practice of having children "play through" their injuries and to raise awareness about the potential harmful effects of head trauma.
Concussion symptoms can include memory problems, difficulty concentrating, headaches, dizziness and vomiting. The legislation will prevent students from returning to play until they have been without symptoms for at least one day and have been cleared by a physician. It also requires education and training for coaches, teachers and other school personnel on the symptoms and treatment of mild traumatic brain injuries.
The legislation required the state Education and Health departments to develop guidelines for recognizing and monitoring concussions, and protocols for removing students from play and clearing them to return. NYSED's Guidelines for Concussion Management in the School Setting is available to download. The NYS Health Department has created a Sports-Related Concussion page with more information.
