We are NOT testing for COVID-19 in Cook Children’s Emergency Department at this time.

All visitors/patients coming to ED will be screened for COVID-19. Patients with fever/cough will be kept away from patients with non-infectious conditions.

If you're concerned your child may have been exposed, the best course of action is to self-quarantine for 14 days and contact your county health department. If you believe your child has been exposed, please isolate them from others during the self-quarantine time frame.

MASKS: Parents and families, as we continue to follow the recommendations from the CDC, if you have an appointment at our Dodson clinic, our urgent care centers, or any of our other clinics or primary care offices, please bring and wear your own cloth face covering from home. Learn how to make your own cloth face covering or mask here. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe.
