Landmark Re-Entry Reminders

For those who have returned to work (on a limited schedule) at Landmark or plan to in the future, have you noticed the Covid-19 safety signs?

In Landmark, at badge in before the elevators, you will find this sign explaining that you must check in on 7 East to receive your daily mask and complete your symptom attestation. The check in hours written on this sign are from 6:30 - 10:30 AM. If you enter after these hours, you must check in at the Hospital Main Lobby.

When taking the elevators to the 7th floor, please note that maximum 4 people are allowed in the elevator at a time. There are squares to stand in when you enter the elevator to promote social distancing.

Here is what the check in station looks like:

Check-in Stations will be located at 401 Park/Landmark Center - 7th floor East Lobby (look for signs directing you here)

Hours: Monday - Friday, 6:30 AM to 10:30 AM 

Ear loop masks will be distributed here. Please wear your masks at all times

Hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes are kept in the supply room. Please share supplies with everyone and do not keep at your desks.
