Johns Hopkins has your safety covered:
Testing and ScreeningEveryone is screened before entering any of our care facilities. Anyone admitted as an inpatient, or who is having a surgery or procedure, will be tested in advance for COVID-19. Anyone testing positive is isolated safely from other patients, or we postpone their surgery or procedure for later. We also screen every staff member, every day.
Masks and Protective EquipmentMasks prevent the spread of COVID-19. Everyone wears a mask when they enter our facility. (Kids under 2 are offered a mask, but it is not required.) The care team is fully protected with protective equipment.
CleaningWe frequently and thoroughly clean and disinfect surfaces throughout all of our medical offices, waiting rooms, operating and procedure rooms, clinics and patient areas. We also clean exam, operating and procedure rooms after each patient. And, we wash our hands frequently — and have lots of hand sanitizer available for you, too.
Physical DistancingWe've redesigned our patient areas to ensure physical distancing, which protects you, other patients and our staff. For now, we’re not allowing visitors into care facilities, except under very limited circumstances. Be sure to read our visitor policy before you come. We will return to our patient-centered visitor policies as soon as possible.
It’s safe to come to Johns Hopkins for health care.
