Library Spaces: Study Rooms & Meeting Pods

Masking Policy – As of December 9, 2022
The Mount Sinai Health System, including the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, is currently at a  “HIGH” community alert level -  masks are required  in all library spaces, classrooms, and computer labs.
  • The Mount Sinai Health System policy on masking aligns with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New York State Department of Health. Faculty, staff, students, trainees on all campuses must mask in all public and clinical areas accessible to patients. When the county in which an employee works is designated by the CDC as low or medium risk for COVID-19, masks may be removed in non-clinical, non-public areas.  Anyone who prefers to mask may do so.  You may check your county here.
