COVID-19 community transmission levels for the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties are no longer “high.” Therefore, Montefiore has updated our masking guidelines for staff, patients and visitors.
Masks are encouraged, but optional, in most areas throughout Montefiore Einstein locations, except for the following locations where masking is required for staff, patients and visitors:
- Inpatient and outpatient medical oncology units
- Chemotherapy infusion suites
- Radiation therapy suites
- Inpatient and outpatient transplant units
- All critical care units, including medical, surgical, subspecialty and neonatal ICUs
- Emergency departments
- Perioperative departments
We will continue to follow all NYS Department of Health guidance regarding masking and will update our guidelines if COVID-19 community transmission rates change.
If you are at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19, you may qualify for antiviral treatments, including oral antiviral treatments. Montefiore Medical Center will be offering prescriptions for Nirmatrelvir/Ritonavir (Paxlovid), Lagevrio (Molnupiravir), or appointments for IV Remdesivir as the most effective treatments against the current Omicron subvariants.
Your Gratitude Keeps Us Going
The current outpouring of appreciation for New York's healthcare workers has been truly humbling. Our community's grace and optimism in the face of hardship inspires us every day. To all those who have cheered and honored our heroes, and to the many who are giving to support our COVID-19 efforts, Montefiore-Einstein would like to thank you. To those who would like to show their support, here's how.
The virus is thought to spread by people in close contact (approximately within 6 feet) through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is also possible to contract the virus by touching an infected surface or item and then touching the nose, eyes or mouth. The virus may be able to live on a surface for a prolonged period of time.
