Safer wait: Waiting rooms aren’t for waiting anymore. You are encouraged to check in from the parking lot via cellphone to maintain social distancing. You will be called to come in when the provider is ready for you. After your visit, you and your Super Kid will leave the office right away. You will be checked out electronically through MyNortonChart or the office will call you.
Testing: Before surgery or other invasive procedures, patients are required to have a COVID-19 test. Testing by appointment also is available for any child.
Expanded disinfecting: In addition to thorough cleaning, we’ve expanded the use of disinfectant foggers in common areas.
Masking for you and the community: All adults and children ages 2 and older visiting a Norton Children’s facility must wear a surgical mask or cloth face covering. You and your child will need to arrive wearing the covering to help protect yourselves and others. Norton Children’s doctors, nurses and staff are all superheroes too, that’s why they wear a mask and are doing everything they can to keep our offices and hospitals safer. Learn more about Super Kid mask safety.
Rebooking: Our providers’ offices are working to contact parents and guardians about rescheduling appointments. If you haven’t been contacted, don’t hesitate to call the office or make a new appointment through MyNortonChart. Some appointments can be handled via Norton Telehealth.
If Your Child Is Sick
