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

- 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).
