To keep all of us safe, but especially to protect our most vulnerable patients, Akron Children’s will continue to rely on the proven safety protocols that slow the spread of COVID-19. These include screening all patients and visitors upon entering our facilities, requiring face masks for everyone over age 2 and medically able, promoting social distancing and hand washing, and encouraging those who are eligible to get the vaccine.

Thank you for helping to keep our patients safe.
