IMPORTANT: Please read

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.

If your child is unconscious, not responding, a bone is sticking out, or the situation seems critical. Dial 9-1-1 immediately for an ambulance. When your child's condition is life threatening or might cause permanent harm, it is safer for your child to be transported via ambulance.
