Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Shriners Healthcare for Children — Twin Cities has taken action to prevent the spread of illness. During this time of heightened risk, everyone is advised to avoid travel or groups of people, such as those in waiting rooms.
We must limit the number of visitors to 1-2 adults. Please evaluate upcoming appointments. If your child’s appointment is routine or non-urgent, please reschedule the visit for a later date.
Shriners Healthcare does not test for the coronavirus, or COVID-19. If you or your child are ill or symptomatic with fever, cough or difficulty breathing, it is important that you contact your regular primary care doctor for testing and treatment of these symptoms.
Please contact our scheduling staff at 612-596-6106 to reschedule your Shriners Healthcare appointment if your child or person accompanying your child has:
- Traveled outside of the country in the last 14 days
- Had contact with someone under investigation for coronavirus (COVID-19)
- Symptoms such as cough, fever or shortness of breath
Everyone who enters our building is asked about the above risk factors before being allowed inside. If your child or accompanying person(s) have symptoms of a contagious condition upon arrival at the clinic, we most likely will not be able to provide service in the interest of not exposing the other patients and families to illness.
This is a rapidly changing situation. We will do our best to keep you informed as the situation evolves. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with containing the spread of this virus.
For questions, please contact our scheduling department at 612-596-6106 or via email.
