   ria staff to be trained in preventing and responding to anaphylaxis
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   Section 1. Paragraph (d) of subdivision 1 and subdivision 2 of section
 2500-h of the public health law, paragraph (d) of subdivision 1 as added
 and subdivision 2 as amended by chapter 254 of the  laws  of  2019,  are
 amended to read as follows:
   (d)  The  commissioner  shall create informational materials detailing
 such anaphylactic policies to be distributed to local school  boards  of
 education,  charter schools, boards of cooperative educational services,
 [and] child day care centers, AND CAFETERIA STAFF  and  shall  make  the
 materials available on the department's website.
   2. The anaphylactic policies established under subdivision one of this
 section shall include the following:
   (a)  a procedure and treatment plan, including emergency protocols and
 responsibilities for school nurses  and  other  appropriate  school  and
 child day care personnel, for responding to anaphylaxis;
   (b)  a  training  course  for  appropriate  school  and child day care
 personnel, INCLUDING CAFETERIA STAFF, for preventing and  responding  to
 anaphylaxis.  The  commissioner  shall, in consultation with the commis-
 sioner of children and family services and the  commissioner  of  educa-
 tion,  consider existing training programs for responding to anaphylaxis
 in order to avoid duplicative training requirements.  Such  pre-existing
 program  shall fulfill the requirement for a training course pursuant to
 this subdivision if the  standards  of  such  pre-existing  program  are
 deemed  by the commissioner to be at least as stringent as the standards
 promulgated by the commissioner  in  the  development  of  the  training
 course  by the state. THE TRAINING COURSE SHALL INCLUDE TRAINING IN FOOD
