Our COVID-19 Safety MeasuresUpdated May 11, 2023 at 10:37 a.m.
At Children's Health℠, the health and safety of our patients, their families and our team members is our number one priority. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 cases within our hospitals and community and adjust safety measures if necessary.
Mask policy update
With the expiration of the federally declared COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on May 11, 2023, Children’s Health is lifting remaining masking protocols.
Beginning May 11, face masks are no longer required in any clinical or nonclinical areas, during patient care or in the Emergency Department waiting rooms. The lifting of mask requirements applies to team members and physicians, as well as patients and families at any Children’s Health location.
Those who feel more comfortable continuing to wear a mask are welcome to do so. Masks will continue to be available at entrances and mask stations.
Additional safety measure
- Virtual Visits: We have expanded our Virtual Visit capabilities across our specialties and for both urgent care and behavioral health needs.
- Vaccinated Staff: Children’s Health is requiring all team members, providers, volunteers, students/trainees, as well as vendors and contractors receive the COVID-19 vaccine and be fully vaccinated.
- Visitor Restrictions: There are currently no visitor restrictions in place. View our visitor guide to learn more about visitation policies and procedures.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to do all we can to make life better for children. It is what we’ve done for more than 100 years and what you can rely on us to continue doing.
