In consideration of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Memorial Sloan Kettering is now shifting all third-party meetings to Webex, phone, or other remote functionalities if possible. 

We recognize that critical services must continue. If an in-person meeting or on-site service is critical (i.e., a vendor needs to come on-site to fix a piece of equipment or accomplish a service that can only be done in person), then it may be held with consideration from your MSK supply chain manager/point of contact. Please connect with your regular MSK contact before reporting to any MSK location.

We are screening all patients and visitors at all of our facilities. Any vendor feeling sick must stay home.

  • Please do not enter any MSK facility if you have any cold or flu-like symptoms, including fever, coughing, difficulty breathing, sore throat, body aches, or chills. Our patients have weakened immune systems, and we must take every precaution to protect them from infection, including COVID-19.

In addition:

  • MSK staff are not currently attending conferences, seminars, or workshops. Until further notice, we have directed MSK staff to avoid all professional conferences and gatherings, including any that are held locally.
  • Internal events are open to MSK staff only. Again, in an abundance of caution, we are limiting internal staff events and conferences to MSK staff. If you have attended events in the past, please understand that our new guidelines restrict outside guests from attending at the present time.

Questions? Please reach out to your usual MSK contact if you have questions about meeting remotely or any ongoing business you may have with them.

We appreciate your support during this period and look forward to resuming regular interactions with you in the future.
