UPMC Visitation Restrictions and Guidelines

UPMC Visitation Restrictions

Updated: April 2, 2020

For the safety of patients and staff, and to lower their likelihood of exposure to any illness including COVID-19, UPMC is temporarily restricting visitors.

While our current visitation guidelines do not apply to facility access of essential health providers and vendors necessary to be on-site for direct patient care or hospital operations, we are recommending they be limited as much as possible, if non-essential.

All visitors, patients, and staff will be screened upon entry to any UPMC hospital and cancer center. Visitors, patients, and staff entering a facility will be asked a series of COVID-19 screening questions.

As of Thursday, April 2, at noon, hospital entry screening will add thermal scan body temperature taking for anyone entering the building. People permitted inside will be given an optional facemask that they may wear when inside the facility.

Outpatients who answer “yes” to any of the screening questions or who have a fever are required to wear masks. NICU visitors also must wear the masks at all times, except while eating. The masks are not required for others who enter the facility.

As of March 27, patients to UPMC’s Emergency Departments cannot be accompanied by a visitor unless the visitor is necessary for the patient’s assistance and care. Visitors must be adults, cannot be showing symptoms, and cannot move around the Emergency Department or enter the main hospital.

We encourage you to use Facetime, Skype, Zoom, and phone calls to virtually visit with loved ones while they are in the hospital. If you need help with this, please let a staff member know.
