December 2022 – Registrar Functions

Registrar functions at Pomeroy College of Nursing at Crouse Hospital will be limited from December 16, 2022 until January 3, 2023 as the College transitions to our new location.  Students will continue to have uninterrupted access to their course information via SONIS.  All paper transcript services (requests) will be suspended during this time and resume normal operations after January 3.

October 2022 – Masking

Ear-loop masks are again required for everyone in all Crouse Health spaces, including the Marley Education Center.   The only exception is for individuals who are seated and eating within the Crouse Hospital Cafeteria or the Pomeroy College of Nursing Student Lounge.

August 2022 – Masking and Screening

Crouse Health has updated their daily COVID-19 masking and screening procedures.  Masks are now optional in all non-clinical areas and therefore not required – this includes the Marley Education Center.  Masks continue to be required for everyone in all Hospital clinical spaces and all areas where patients register, wait, transport through and receive testing and care.  Masking also continues to be required in Hospital common spaces – including lobbies, hallways, elevators and the cafeteria (except when seated and eating).

All employees and students will now begin self-temperature screening (utilizing designated temperature kiosks) and self-attesting to the required COVID-19 questions prior to entering the Hospital (screening questions will be displayed at kiosk locations). This practice is required at all Hospital entry points, including the main lobby, tunnel and basement shuttle location.  Those who self-screen and then enter the building are attesting to an appropriate temperature read and response to each of the required screening questions.  By entering the Hospital to complete clinical, you are attesting to having a temperature within normal limits and are without COVID-19 symptoms or exposure.  Masks will be available at all kiosk screening locations.
