Children’s of Alabama has implemented its seasonal visitation policy for its in-patient units. This change will protect patients, staff, visitors and the community from the potential spread of illness.
Visitors must be at least 12 years of age and symptom-free.
Please do not visit if you or your guest have any of these symptoms:
Have or have had a fever in the last 24 hours
Have a runny nose
Have a cough
Have a sore throat
Have been exposed to anyone with flu-like symptoms
Masks are recommended but not required. However, masks may be required in some patient care areas.
With a few exceptions, Children’s allows visitation daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. All visitors must register and wear hospital-issued identification before visiting any area. Clergy/spiritual care providers may visit at the discretion of patients/families.
