SECTION 270.45
Trial jury; when separation permitted
Criminal Procedure (CPL) CHAPTER 11-A, PART 2, TITLE J, ARTICLE 270
§ 270.45 Trial jury; when separation permitted.

During the period extending from the time the jurors are sworn to the
time they retire to deliberate upon their verdict, the court may in its
discretion either permit them to separate during recesses and
adjournments or direct that they be continuously kept together during
such periods under the supervision of an appropriate public servant or
servants. In the latter case, such public servant or servants may not
speak to or communicate with any juror concerning any subject connected
with the trial nor permit any other person to do so, and must return the
jury to the court room at the next designated trial session.
