Physicals will be needed for participation in winter sports, the following is a brief announcement from the state with a follow up example question;

Important note for winter sports - NYSED is NOT extending the preparticipation physical exam waiver for winter sports at this time.

"If an athlete had a physical date 11/1/2019, would that carry them through the winter season since the winter start date is Nov. 30th, 2020?"
Here is the answer - YES.  A memo from NYSED says:

"If the 12-month period for the physical expires during a sports season, participants may complete the season as long as a health history was conducted  prior to the season. For example, a physical conducted on August 1 would be valid through August  31. If a student plays beyond August  (ex.  football),  the student may complete that sports season as long as an interval health history was conducted before the start of the season.  Immediately following the last sanctioned tournament competition for that season, a new physical is required  if the student is going to play another sport.   Please remember that the sports season includes tryouts."
