The New York State Department of Health announced on Friday 5/20/16 that influenza is no longer prevalent in New York State. Unvaccinated workers are no longer required to wear a surgical mask while in areas where patients/residents are typically present. In addition, vaccinated workers may remove the purple identifier from their ID badges.

Thank you for your support in ensuring Northwell Health’s compliance with the state’s influenza mask mandate.

Sincerely,
