COVID-19 Staff Resources
More details have been released on the MTA's Essential Connector program.
In summary, the MTA will be increasing bus service between 1 am and 5 am, when the subways will be closed for cleaning. In cases where the bus does not provide a suitable alternative, employees can request a for-hire vehicle (one way) to pick them up from work or take them home. There is a form online where essential employees can provide their contact information/trip details to get more information on booking a ride (employees must fill out this form in advance and bring their Mount Sinai ID to obtain the ride): https://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/app/essential-connector. Essential workers can now pre-book a trip for the following morning. (You will still be able to request a ride on demand between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. if you choose not to pre-book.) Call 718-330-1234 and select option 1 to book.
Mount Sinai Employee Health Services (EHS) has extended its hours to provide telephonic consults for MSHS employees who are ill, concerned about COVID-19 exposure, or who need clearance to return to work.
You can call 212-844-1100 for a telephone consultation between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday - Friday, Saturday and Sundays between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. Providers will be on hand for a symptom check and advice on next steps.
If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call one of our 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Phone Numbers.
Mount Sinai is dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. As cases of COVID-19 spread globally, we want all Mount Sinai Health System employees to remain up to date on our Emergency Management and Infection Prevention measures. This page is open to the public but is intended primarily for the use of Mount Sinai staff.
The COVID-19 health emergency has made telemedicine a critical resource for patients to safely connect with physicians. To ensure that social distancing does not create a barrier to care, we have made Mount Sinai Now—our telehealth urgent care platform—available to all employees regardless of their insurance plan through 2020.
If you have any COVID-19 related questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
