Call your doctor before leaving home if you think you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in our community, visitor restrictions are in place for all Duke clinics and hospitals. For your safety and the safety of others, we recommend patients do not bring a visitor to Duke clinics, if at all possible. If a visitor must accompany a patient, only one individual over 12 years of age is allowed. Patients and visitors will be screened for symptoms upon arrival. Individuals with flu-like symptoms are not allowed. View the complete list of Visitor Restrictions.

Effective immediately, Duke Health is prioritizing and rescheduling some non-emergent or non-critical surgeries, procedures, and appointments. Check our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) page for updates.

Duke Regional Hospital

As the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to rapidly evolve, Duke University Health System is working diligently to monitor developments and implement guidelines to prevent the spread of infection. Our top priority is to keep patients, visitors, team members, and the community at large safe. At this time, all hospital volunteer programs are suspended until further notice. We will keep you updated about the status of our volunteer program, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our hospitals in this important capacity as soon as possible.


Duke Regional Hospital offers volunteer opportunities in direct and non-direct patient care areas. Whether you are interested in welcoming visitors at the Information Desk, assisting in a patient care area or assisting with clerical work, Volunteer Services has a place for you. Volunteer Services will work with you to ensure your assignment matches your skills, interest, and time commitment.
