Visitation guidelines are in place to prioritize the safety and well-being of everyone who visits our facilities.
Face Masks Required in Some Facilities
Face masks are required in all hospital patient care areas, including:
- Emergency departments
- Clinics within or attached to hospitals (for example, Duke South clinics)
- Cancer clinics
- Infusion clinics
Masking is also required for patients coming to a clinic with respiratory symptoms, any accompanying family/visitors, or for anyone caring for patients with respiratory symptoms.
Masking is optional in ambulatory surgical centers and low-risk ambulatory clinics that are not attached to a hospital. Please follow all signage.
We continue to monitor community respiratory illness levels for any additional adjustments. Thank you for your attention and commitment to patient and team member safety.
Enhanced Cleaning and Hand Hygiene
We perform enhanced cleaning between every patient. We clean exam rooms and equipment with CDC-approved products. We perform additional daily cleanings. Hand sanitizing stations and signage encourage hand hygiene for all staff, patients, and visitors.
Lab and Leave Services
To minimize your time in the clinic, your doctor may direct you to receive lab services at one of our Lab and Leave locations. Learn more.
