Visitor restrictions

To protect the health and safety of our patients and team members, Novant Health is limiting the number of visitors that come with patients to its ambulatory clinics:

  • Patients may only bring one visitor with them to their appointment.
  • Visitors must be 13 or older unless needing medical care.
  • Visitors must be healthy (no cough, fever or flu-like symptoms).
  • Visitors will be asked to wait in the exam room with the patient.

Please note: Additional restrictions apply at our women's health clinics and Cancer Institute clinics.

Our goal is to protect our patients and treat our visitors and families with compassion and respect. There are unique situations that may arise that will require judgement, and we will work with these families to make their experience with us remarkable.

Masking in clinics

Our team members are wearing masks to protect our patients and our communities.

Have a fever and a cough?
A mask will be available for you to wear during your visit. Please do not take a mask if you do not have a fever or respiratory symptoms.

Essential appointments only

Novant Health has made the decision to reschedule nonessential surgeries, procedures and preventive care appointments, effective March 18. Rescheduling these appointments will minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus and also allows us to conserve critical resources and focus care on those who need it most.

Nonessential appointments include physical and well-checkups, as well as mammograms. Clinics will contact patients if their appointments need to be rescheduled. Patients do not need to call the helpline or the clinic to change their appointment.
