COVID-19 | Mount Sinai Hospital Resources

Access Control

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, a key principle of our planning and preparedness is ensuring the safety and well-being of our people and our patients.

The following practices for access control are now in place at Mount Sinai Hospital for our people:

  • Pedestrian access will be through both the University Avenue and Murray Street entrances. Please be ready to show your ID badge. By entering you will be confirming that you have self-screened for COVID-19 (cough, runny/stuffy nose, fever or sore throat).
  • Visitors, patients and any vendors/contractors (without ID badge) will enter through both the University Avenue and Murray Street entrances.
  • Patient drop-off will be on Murray Street in front of the Visitor/Patient screening entrance and patient pick-up will be maintained at the Murray Street Driveway.

While we will make every effort to expedite entry to the building, we ask for your patience and understanding as we pilot our screening processes over the course of the next few weeks.

Daily Checklist

When coming to work, please consider the following:

Ensure you have your ID badge with you.

Plan for extra time to enter the building, especially at peak periods like shift change.

When you arrive, you will be asked to confirm that you are symptom free before you enter the building.

Consider bringing your lunch as you will need to be screened before each entry.

Have your manager’s contact information handy.

If you are feeling unwell, please review these instructions.
