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 20 members as follows:
