Fox Chase Cancer Center is open and operating during normal business hours and offering telehealth appointments when appropriate for our patients. We are closely monitoring developments related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and are committed to the safety and well-being of our patients during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Fox Chase is determined to keep COVID-19 out of our center. In an effort to safeguard our patients, staff, faculty, and volunteers, and minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19, the following measures have been put in place:
- We are following restricted visitor policies during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as more individuals receive the COVID-19 vaccine, we are adapting our policies as needed and allowing more visitors into our facilities. Our latest guidelines are listed here.
- All patients will be screened at all Fox Chase locations.
- All individuals entering all Fox Chase locations will be given a face mask to wear during their time in our facilities (regardless of their vaccination status). This includes all employees.
We know this pandemic can be concerning for patients and their loved ones. Fox Chase will continue to prioritize the safety of our patients, volunteers, and staff during this time.
Fox Chase encourages those who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to take this lifesaving step to get vaccinated, protecting not only yourself, but those around you. Read more information on the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you have questions regarding your upcoming appointment or your care at Fox Chase, please contact your care team.
If someone has a cold, sore throat, infectious disease or fever, they should not visit any patient room, as cancer patients may be prone to catching an illness.
