We are experiencing high volumes, which has led to increased wait times at our emergency departments and urgent care locations. Thank you for your patience.

Check Wait Times

Updated Sept. 20, 2021

To protect our patients, their families and our staff, we are limiting each visitor to one parent or caregiver at our Emergency departments, Urgent Care Centers, Emory Children’s Center and some services within our hospitals.

Your safety is our priority

Because the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff is a priority, Children’s is:

  • Screening all patients and visitors for illness, including a temperature check. No sick visitors will be allowed in our facilities.
  • Allowing two caregivers with each patient. No other family or visitors are allowed.
    • Our Emergency Departments, Urgent Care Centers, Emory Children’s Center and some services within our hospitals continue to have one caregiver limits. These services include hospital radiology and laboratory services, as well as outpatient clinics for cardiac, transplant and infusion.
  • Requiring everyone to wear a mask at all times during their visit.
  • Practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet away from other patients and visitors.
  • Enhancing cleaning measures.

COVID-19 Pediatric Assessment Tool

This tool is meant to help parents answer two questions:

  1. What should I do if my child has a fever and/or a cough?
  2. What should I do if my child has been around someone with COVID-19, but my child has no symptoms?
