COVID-19 Vistor Policy

Updated: June 10, 2021
 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Fox Chase has remained committed to keeping our patients safe.

As more individuals receive the COVID-19 vaccine and the number of new cases continues to decline in the United States, we are adapting our visitor policy as needed and allowing more visitors in to support our patients.

Our latest guidelines are listed below:

Fox Chase Main Campus

Outpatient Visitors

At our Main Campus, patients can bring one visitor to their outpatient appointments. While outpatient visitors are not required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, we strongly encourage them to be for the safety of those in our care.

During radiation treatments, infusions, and outpatient procedures, visitors may sit in our regular waiting areas throughout the Center or in the Young Pavilion mezzanine.

At this time, no visitors are permitted in our infusion room.

Our cafeteria and café are now open to visitors as well.

Inpatient Visitors

All inpatients are allowed one visitor at a time between 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Visitors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least two weeks out from their final vaccine dose) and must bring proof of vaccination to be allowed into the inpatient area.

Fox Chase Outpatient Facilities

At each of our outpatient facilities, patients can bring one visitor to their appointments. During radiation treatments, infusions and outpatient procedures, visitors may sit in our regular waiting areas.

Masking Policies

The CDC is now endorsing fully vaccinated individuals (those who are at least two weeks out from their final vaccine dose) returning to regular activities without needing to wear a mask.

However, this does not include healthcare settings, where the CDC still recommends wearing masks for the protection of yourself and others.

Because of these continued guidelines for healthcare facilities, and to keep our most vulnerable patients safe from COVID-19, all individuals need to wear a mask for the duration of their time in all our locations.

Thank you for your continued support of our efforts to keep our patients safe. We know that caregivers and loved ones play a vital role in the healing process, and we are so happy to allow them back into our locations. If you have any questions, please contact your care team.
