PreCheck-in from MyChart helps keep you safe: PreCheck-in makes it easy for you to prepare for your upcoming appointment and helps minimize the amount of direct contact you have with our staff, assisting with a paperless transaction process to help reduce the risk of transmitting germs, which helps keep you safe.

How We're Keeping You Safe
Effective Monday, December 7
We know this is a challenging time for our entire community, even more so for families who have a loved one in need of hospitalization. As we have continued to monitor COVID-19 positivity rates at Texas Children’s, across the Texas Medical Center and in the community, the current positivity rate exceeds the thresholds we established to maintain a safe environment in the hospital setting. These increasing positivity rates necessitated the change to the guidelines we relaxed in September. Our clinical and administrative leaders review COVID-19 positivity rates at Texas Children’s, across the Texas Medical Center and in the community daily, and if/when rates begin to fall, we will act quickly to reexamine and update our visitation guidelines, as needed.
In addition to the visitor guidelines below, we ask that you do all you can to decrease the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to limit your attendance at gatherings, wearing a mask, washing your hands and practicing social distancing in the community.
- All visits will allow one visitor, parent or primary caregiver age 18 or older.
- To help protect our patients and staff – if at all possible – we ask that you not bring siblings, children or other visitors younger than 18 years of age.
- All patients and caregivers will be subject to screening (exposure and symptom questions and a temperature check) upon arrival. After screening, all patients and caregivers will be required to wear an issued mask.
Once you arrive →
You and your child’s temperature will be taken. You will also be asked a series of symptom-related questions.
After you pass the screening process, you will be issued a mask. Please wear this mask at all times for the duration of your visit at any of our sites.
We ask that you please practice appropriate social distancing and stay approximately 6 feet away from others whenever and wherever possible, including waiting in line.
For patients completing a video visit →
Meeting with a provider by video visit is a convenient way to receive care without coming to the practice in person.
You can use a web browser on your computer or an app on a mobile device to start a video visit. Mobile devices are preferred, because the MyChart app makes it easy to access your visit and most mobile devices already have the appropriate camera and microphone setup for video visits.
All Texas Children’s locations are actively screening in order to minimize exposure risk to our patients, families, staff and providers. In addition, some patients may need COVID-19 testing.
Current Patients: If you suspect you may have or have been exposed to COVID-19, log in to your MyChart and schedule a video visit with your pediatrician’s office, to determine next steps for COVID-19 testing. At Texas Children’s locations, testing is available only as directed by a Texas Children’s provider and not open to the general public. If you’re new to our system, please check the practice locations page for contact and scheduling details.
Health authorities encourage residents to get tested for COVID-19 if you think you have it or were in contact with someone who tested positive.
- You should contact your primary care physician or see the below publicly available testing resources. If your child does not have a primary pediatrician, you can contact one of our Texas Children’s Pediatrics locations to become a patient. (To note, only established Texas Children’s Pediatrics patients are eligible for testing at Texas Children’s. All others should refer to the below resources.)
