Patient and visitor screening in progress at LCRP
Because our cancer patients are uniquely vulnerable to coronavirus, the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion has implemented visitor restrictions to avoid spread of respiratory illnesses.
Patients and visitors to the LCRP will be screened through a questionnaire. Please be prepared to:
- Answer questions about your travel history
- State if you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath)
- State if you have a fever
- Tell us of any recent contact with an ill traveler
For the safety of our patients and for the safety of your children, children under the age of 18 are not permitted to visit any patients at St. Joseph’s/Candler.
Additionally, only one visitor will be allowed to accompany a patient.
These actions are necessary to avoid the spread of respiratory illnesses such as the flu and newly discovered COVID-19. COVID-19 is an illness that can spread from person to person. Learn more here.
