Additionally, all visitors will be assessed for cough and fever at all hospital entrances before being allowed to enter.
Elective procedures have been canceled for patients over 60, if the hospital stay will be more than 2 days, and for those that would require extensive use of personal protective equipment.
The main circle drive entrance to University Hospital is closed, patients need to enter through the patient and visitor parking garage.
All locations have ended valet service and shuttle service at Women’s & Children’s has stopped.
Shuttle service will begin at University Hospital, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, Missouri Psychiatric Center and Missouri Orthopaedic Institute.
