Visitor Restrictions

Last updated: May 2, 2024

Visitor access is limited as outlined below. In some cases, visitor access may not be allowed at all. Limited exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis.


Masks are welcomed at the University of Chicago Medicine and may be mandatory in certain spaces within our medical facilities as well as for some patients, visitors and staff. These policies and guidelines are subject to change. In addition, as a patient, you and your family can request that your healthcare providers wear masks during appointments or during your hospital stay. Let our teams know about this request when you check in and you will be given a teal sticker to wear. Visit our masking page for the latest information.

Entryway Health Screening

Visitors will be required to undergo a health screening. Anyone with a fever, cough, or flu-like illness will not be allowed to visit patients or accompany them to appointments. Visitors who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 10 days will not be allowed.
