LONG BEACH, NEW YORK – A Long Beach emergency room was forced to close its doors on Monday because of a nursing staff shortage, as a New York state rule took effect that bars unvaccinated medical workers from their jobs. Officials at Mount Sinai South Nassau said Monday that all other options were exhausted before the decision was made to suspend around 70 unvaccinated workers and close the ER, starting at 3 p.m.

The shutdown is a direct result of the hospital’s compliance with the state Department of Health’s mandate issued that requires the suspension of all staff working under temporary religious exemptions who could not show proof of receiving the first dose of COVID-19 vaccination or a valid medical exemption.

Mount Sinai South Nassau said the closure could last four or more weeks as the hospital actively recruited qualified staff who are vaccinated.
