Visitation Policies

medical maskJanuary 2022: Given the high transmissibility of the COVID Omicron variant, cloth masks are not permitted in UR Medicine hospitals, on- and off-site ambulatory clinics, clinical labs, and clinical research areas.

To keep everyone safe, medical masks must be worn and will be provided upon request.

UR Medicine visitation policies follow New York State Department of Health safety recommendations to limit visit length and the total number of visitors allowed per patient. We ask that you check our hospital policies before your visit.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and support.

Physician Offices or Other Outpatient Areas

Most outpatient offices will continue to accommodate 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.
