Your Main Campus Visit

Reducing Parent, Caregiver and Sibling Entry

To keep our patients, families and staff safe from COVID-19, we strongly recommend one caregiver accompany their child to any CHOP location. For more information, please see the latest guidance on reduced entry to CHOP locations.

If you or your child develops concerning symptoms of cough, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell, contact your medical provider immediately. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency department, call ahead and tell them about your/your child’s symptoms. They will coordinate safe testing and treatment and get you the care you need.
