About Your Visit to an Arkansas Children's Facility
Although the statewide mask mandate is no longer in effect, all visitors to any Arkansas Children’s facility are required to wear masks and follow our COVID-19 visitor restrictions. For the safety and well-being of our patients, we ask all visitors to be healthy when visiting our inpatient units. All visitors will be asked a wellness screen and should not have a cough, runny nose, congestion, fever or diarrhea. If you have any of those symptoms, we ask that you stay home until you are better. All visitors are asked to not visit until 48 hours after their symptoms stop.
In order to keep our patients, families and team safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have updated our visitor guidelines:
- Visiting hours are 9 a.m.– 9 p.m.
- ACH allows two caregivers per patient at inpatient, OR surgery/bedside and the Emergency Department. In order to allow for social distancing, this does not apply to outpatient clinics at ACH, and those patients are limited to one caregiver. Two caregivers are allowed to stay overnight as space allows.
- ACNW allows two caregivers per patient in all clinical areas of the hospital. They also allow two caregivers to stay overnight in inpatient.
- Visitors should not bring large groups, including additional family members, to the hospital.
- Visitor screening is in place at all open sites of service entrances at all campuses.
