COVID-19 Information and Resources
VNSNY is committed to helping New Yorkers stay safe and healthy.
What is VNSNY doing to help in the fight against COVID-19?
The safety and health of our team and patients are always a top priority at VNSNY. Our team members are in the community every day and are always vigilant about protecting their—and their patients’—health.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, VNSNY frontline team members and home health aides from our Partners in Care division have remained on the job, continuing to do the crucial work of keeping New Yorkers healthy and at home in these challenging times!
All team members are also required to screen themselves every day to ensure they do not have a fever or other COVID-19 symptoms—or any other illness that might be passed along to patients or their families.
What other steps is VNSNY taking to keep patients, plan members, and the community safe?
VNSNY has been working with the New York State Department of Health and the CDC to make sure our patients, team members, and the community we serve are supported against COVID-19.
- We follow New York State, CDC, and New York City public health protocols and our employees must comply with COVID-19 vaccine mandates (unless they are legally exempt).
- Employees who make home visits wear personal protective equipment, are trained on how to use it, and are required to wear it during visits. They also monitor their health status daily.
