Alert: Coronavirus

While Boston Children’s has not yet treated a case of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, we’re asking all patients, families and visitors to help us prevent the spread of the virus.

The Coronavirus is most commonly spread through coughing or sneezing between people in close contact with each other, and presents as a mild to severe respiratory illness, with symptoms that include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. You can learn more, here.

If you think that you or a member of your family has been exposed to the Coronavirus—or has travelled to Wuhan, China, in the past 14 days—please contact your healthcare provider right away. If you are coming to Boston Children's for care, please let our staff know about your possible exposure or symptoms immediately on arrival.
