Nemours Visitor Policy and Update

Information below was posted and is effective as of March 22 and may change. For updates, please visit Nemours' website here.

New Visitor Policy in Effect 
We know how important family are to the care and well-being of our patients. To keep you and your child safe, and to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily introduced new visiting restrictions at all Nemours clinical locations.
For inpatient hospital and emergency department visits

  • We are asking families to name one or two healthy parents/caregivers to be a patient’s approved visitor(s) for the full hospital stay. Only these people can visit. All others, including siblings, cannot come into the hospital. 
  • We will ask health screening questions at the hospital entrance. After visitors are approved, they must wear a special wristband issued by the check-in staff. 
Approved visitors who leave the hospital and don’t return within 24 hours will be given a new wristband and screened again.
For urgent care, outpatient, specialty and primary care visits in Delaware Valley and in Florida
  • Only one healthy parent or caregiver can accompany a child. Siblings and other family or friends may not be at these visits.  
Limiting visitors helps us control the spread of illness and keep everyone safe. Please note that this process is subject to change. We are monitoring the situation daily and appreciate your help in protecting your child and others. Thank you!
NOTE: These rules only apply at Nemours locations. Policies at our affiliated hospitals may be different. The check-in staff at those locations will explain their policy.
