Visitation Policies

Help Us Keep Everyone Safe

A new visitation policy is now in place at all UR Medicine locations.  We want our patients to have support from family and friends while receiving care, but we must balance that with the real need to limit the number of people in patient care facilities. UR Medicine visitation policies vary by location, and can change at any time to reflect the current level of COVID cases in a particular community.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and support, and ask that you check our policies before your visit. 

Hospitals (and related services like EDs and surgery centers)

Physician Offices or Other Outpatient Areas

Most outpatient offices are currently accommodating up to one support person IF assistance is needed. Note that due to COVID’s impact on immunocompromised patients, Wilmot Cancer Center is currently not allowing any visitors or support persons (with very limited exceptions). Please check in with your physician office to learn of exact policy before your appointment.
