We know this is a challenging time for our entire community, even more so for families who have a loved one in need of hospitalization. As we have continued to monitor COVID-19 positivity rates at Texas Children’s, across the Texas Medical Center and in the community, the current positivity rate exceeds the thresholds we established to maintain a safe environment in the hospital setting. These increasing positivity rates necessitated the change to the guidelines we relaxed in September. Our clinical and administrative leaders review COVID-19 positivity rates at Texas Children’s, across the Texas Medical Center and in the community daily, and if/when rates begin to fall, we will act quickly to reexamine and update our visitation guidelines, as needed.
In addition to the visitor guidelines below, we ask that you do all you can to decrease the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to limit your attendance at gatherings, wearing a mask, washing your hands and practicing social distancing in the community.
