Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome

The NYC Department of Education is sharing information emerging about Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome, or PMIS, a new health condition appearing in children in New York City and elsewhere, and which may be associated with COVID-19 in children.


The attached letter offers more information to families about the illness and guidance about when to seek medical care. Please share it with all the families in your communities now; translations will soon be available and posted to the Coronavirus Parent Letters page on the Info Hub.


This situation is still developing, and we will provide further updates and guidance as new information becomes available from the NYC DoE and DoH.
