Visitor and Masking Policy

Your clinical care team at Winship is steadfastly committed to your safety and well being. We are working with experts throughout Emory to keep you safe.

Updated April 24, 2023

Visitor Policy

We are pleased to share that we have modified our visitor policy, which eliminates many of the restrictions previously in place. Please read below for details and check with your operating unit for any specific visitation policies based on patient population.

Please note the following:

  • Patients attending our outpatient oncology clinics, receiving infusion treatment or imaging procedures at any of the Winship locations are encouraged to limit to one (1) visitor throughout the visit.
  • Visitors are accomodated in inpatient settings.
  • Limited visitation for visitors under 12 years of age and all minors under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Any exceptions to the visitor policy will be at the discretion of the clinical care team.

Visit Emory Healthcare's website for the most current updates on the visitor policy.

Masking Policy

In adherence with Emory Healthcare's mask policy, all staff/providers, patients, care partners, and visitors must wear a mask in areas that care for patients who are immunocompromised or are otherwise at increased risk of COVID and/or severe disease. As a result, all patients and visitors must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose at all times (including patient rooms) regardless of vaccination status while visiting any of our locations. We will provide masks for those who do not have one.

We ask that if you are feeling sick or have a fever or cough, please contact us for guidance before coming to your appointment. We advise all patients, whether under active treatment or not, with symptoms of coronavirus, or flu, to contact their provider. Please call your team at (404) 778-1900 if you develop symptoms, and we will direct you regarding next steps. Our clinical teams are ready to answer any questions or address any concerns.

Please be assured that we are thinking of your safety, health, and comfort at all times. Thank you for trusting us with your care.

Committed to your Safety

At Winship, we are aligned with Emory Healthcare and Emory University in our commitment to providing the safest environment to care for our patients and to protect our staff, providers, and community.

Several policies underscore our institutional commitment to health and safety:

  • Emory Healthcare requires all providers and employees to have received their COVID-19 vaccinations.
  • Emory University strongly recommends all students, faculty, and staff stay up-to-date with all COVID-19 vaccinations. Learn more

As we continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 in our community, we are aware that adjustments to the current policies and guidelines may be necessary.
