Infection Prevention Team | Feedback Form
The Student Infection Prevention (IP) reps, meet with the academic IP team weekly to ensure that student concerns are voiced and addressed. The physicians on the IP team are Dr. Forsyth, Dr. Parkas, and Dr. Zbar. (Please note that this team is different from Mount Sinai’s institutional IP team, which along with the deans of medical and graduate education makes final decisions regarding curriculum and infection prevention policy). Please email the IP team members with any questions or concerns!
- IP will be sending out updated data on a semi-regular basis, so be on the lookout for more information in the future!
- Proper hand hygiene, social distancing, and mask-wearing remain critical. Masks are now required in all areas across campus (including Aron Hall common areas, hallways, and elevators) to keep everyone safe. The updated guidelines can be found here.
- All school-sanctioned social gatherings with 20+ people now require the approval of IP/MedEd. To submit a request you can use this formslack request form. You will then hear back from the IP committee for further discussion and possible approval.
- Anyone traveling from NYC, including within the tristate area, must fill out the travel registry. The travel registry is what allows Student Health to contact you with instructions on what you need to do upon return.
- Any student in any way involved in activities on-campus at Sinai, including research, clinical activities, or living in Sinai housing, must fill out the symptom tracker daily.
- We are pleased to announce that a surgical mask dispenser has been installed in Aron Hall shortly to help with masking efforts. As a reminder, when in Aron Hall common spaces, please wear a mask!
