So When Can I Close My File? Calculating New York's COVID-19 Toll

 A claim handling client asked me today on what date the statute of limitations for a third-party personal injury claim that would have expired on July 11, 2020 if New York's COVID-19 toll (if it was a toll and not a suspension--see my previous posts on this blog) had not been put in place now expires?  

The answer can be found on Slide 33 of my November 3, 2020 presentation:

So the answer is?  February 25, 2021.  

  • The number of days from March 20, 2020 to and including July 11, 2020 is 114.
  • 114 days after November 3, 2020 is February 25, 2021.  
Easy peasy.  Something else you can be thankful for tomorrow. 

Stay safe and well, everyone, and have a happy (if socially distant) Thanksgiving.

P.S.  I used two websites/services to make these calculations:
