COVID-19 Visitor RestrictionsUpdated March 24, 2020 at 12:12 pm
As cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) increase in North Texas, we continue to focus on your safety by following recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to limit possible exposure.
We have implemented visitor restrictions for all facilities in the Children’s Health℠ system. Our visitation restrictions were updated recently to prevent further exposure and combat community spread.
Visitor restrictions now include:
- Visitation is limited to two designated caregivers 18 years or older. The two designated caregivers will be the only visitors allowed during the patient’s entire stay at Children’s Health.
- A nurse will provide each of the designated visitors with an orange bracelet to be during the patient’s stay.
- All common patient areas, playrooms, food service locations, lobbies and waiting areas are included in this visitor restriction.
- Caregivers with fever or respiratory symptoms will not be allowed inside Children’s Health facilities.
We will continue to screen caregivers daily upon entering any area of our hospitals or other Children’s Health facilities. As always, we ask that you please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after entering a patient room.
For outpatient appointments, if you or your child has fever, cough or shortness of breath, please call the clinic before your appointment.
We apologize for any inconvenience these may cause and appreciate your patience and support as we address this emerging public health crisis. Children's Health is committed to taking a proactive approach in maintaining a safe environment for our patient families and team members
