What to Expect

COVID-19: What to Expect for Your Child’s Safety at In-Person Appointments

We’ve made a lot of changes to our facilities to protect our patients, families and staff from Covid-19.

Visitor restrictions at all our locations

At all of our clinics, we recommend that only one parent or caregiver accompany a patient to their appointment. However, if two caregivers need to come along, we will allow it at this time. Siblings who are younger than 12 months are also allowed to come along. Siblings of any other age are not allowed to come along, and we do not allow more than two caregivers without an exception.

  • When you come for your appointment, you will see that we’re requiring everyone to wear masks at all times, cleaning check-in and registration desks between visits, screening for symptoms at all entrances and have set up our spaces to encourage social distancing.
  • Watch what to expect at your clinic visit during COVID-19 (video).
  • Learn more about the rest of the safety measures we have in place.
  • To make sure that our services are right for your child, our team reviews your child's medical history and lab tests before scheduling an appointment. In some cases, we may ask your child's doctor to give your child certain lab tests. To schedule an appointment, we need a referral from your child's doctor.
  • Please note that our clinic does not evaluate or manage disorders that are mainly related to allergies. If you are concerned about allergies, please talk to your child's primary care provider.
  • Seattle Children’s bills a facility charge (PDF) for hospital-based clinic visits. Learn more about your bill.
