Pediatric visitation restrictions

To help contain coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), Niswonger Children’s Hospital has implemented new visitation restrictions, including:

  • Limiting pediatric visitors to 2 guests per patient, who must be a parent/legal guardian*
  • Engaging all visitors in screening protocols
  • Limiting public entry points

*Only 2 visitors at a time is currently allowed in non-pediatric inpatient hospital departments. Learn more about these visitation restrictions.

Screenings and face mask requirements

Each visitor will be screened for potential signs of illness and required to wear a cloth face covering, which they need to provide for themselves.

Due to the increased risk of virus transmission, masks with vents and/or valves are not permitted.

These measures are to help contain coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
