Screenings for patients and visitors

COVID-19 screenings for patients and visitors

We are screening patients and visitors before they enter our facilities to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 and keep our children, families and team members healthy. Anyone without a VCU Health System badge will be screened.

Screenings are quick and painless:

1 – We’ll ask if you or your child are experiencing cough, sore throat or difficulty breathing
2 – We’ll quickly take your and your child’s temperature with a no-touch thermometer

If you or your child have any of the symptoms above, or have a temp of 100.4 or higher, we’ll ask you to put on a mask and a member of our clinical team will determine the next steps. We're here to care for our kids and families - and we appreciate your cooperation during these times of change.

Our safety promise to you

A lot has changed since COVID-19, but what will never change is our commitment to you.
