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).

    • If your child is receiving therapy outside of Seattle Children’s, ask the therapist to fax your child’s therapy notes to us at 206-985-3331, or get copies to bring with you.
    • Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to get your photo name badge and check in.
    • Write down questions about your child’s condition or treatment and bring them with you.
    • Learn more about what to do before your stay.
