 AN ACT in relation to enacting  the  "reimagining  long-term  care  task
   force"  to  create  a  task force to study the state of long-term care
   services in this state
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
 the "reimagining long-term care task force act".
   § 2. Reimagining long-term care task force; duties.  There  is  hereby
 created the reimagining long-term care task force. Such task force shall
 study  the  state of long-term care services, options and challenges for
 older New Yorkers and reimagine how the state can better meet the exist-
 ing and projected needs of such New  Yorkers  in  ways  that  prioritize
 safety  and  affordability, and enhance the quality of life for those in
 need of such care.   In carrying out its  task,  the  task  force  shall
 consider  the  full  continuum  of  care available to older New Yorkers,
 including, but not limited to,  community-based  services,  consumer-di-
 rected services, independent living, assisted living and skilled-nursing
 facility  care.  The  task  force  shall study the limitations currently
 hampering quality care, both in home-based and facility-based  settings,
 and  consider  potential  models  for improvement. In addition, the task
 force shall study the challenges and issues generated by the coronavirus
 pandemic, including, but not limited to, infection control protocols and
 enforcement, staffing  shortages,  lack  of  federally  mandated  crisis
 plans,   visitation   bans,  and  other  factors  that  exacerbated  the
 pandemic's toll on residents and staff  of  skilled  nursing  and  other
 adult-care  facilities. The task force shall utilize the findings of its
 study on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic to formulate recommenda-
 tions on how such skilled nursing and other  adult-care  facilities,  as
 well  as home care service agencies, can better care for and protect the
 overall well-being of residents and clients in any future emergency.
   § 3. Membership. 1. The reimagining long-term care  task  force  shall
 consist of 22 members as follows:
   (a) the director of the office for the aging, or his or her designee;
   (b) the commissioner of health, or his or her designee;
