COVID-19 Alert

We’ve made changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from COVID-19.

  • Everyone is required to wear masks at all times. Check-in and registration desks are cleaned regularly. We are screening for symptoms at all entrances and our spaces are set up to encourage social distancing.
  • Only 1 person may accompany a patient to an appointment or visit to any of our locations. Siblings are not allowed. 
  • Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place at all Seattle Children’s locations. 


Patients and families may pull into the Emergency Department driveway and a free 24-hour valet service will park your car on the hospital campus.
