Current Visitation Policy

Updated May 1, 2020

In accordance with the CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health, we have revised our visitor policy.

All patients entering or staying at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center will not be permitted to have accompanying visitors, except under special circumstances.

These circumstances include:

Inpatient Visits
  • Patients nearing the end of life
  • Labor/delivery and post-partum (one designated support person; support person must remain with the patient — re-entry will not be granted)
  • Neonatal Intensive Care
  • Pediatrics
  • Patients with special needs
Outpatient Visits
  • Patients who are unable to complete the visit on their own

For these special circumstances only, visitors are limited to one person, over the age of 18. Visitors will be required to complete health screening procedures upon entry, have periodic monitoring and restrict mobility as much as possible while at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center.

We are requiring all patients and visitors to wear a face covering or mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We ask that you bring your own face covering or mask to wear – please note that masks must be well-fitting and must cover the nose and mouth without falling off (bandanas and shirts pulled over the face are unacceptable). If you do not have an acceptable face covering or mask, we will provide you with one. 

Any visitor who is sick, has a high risk of prior exposure or has traveled from a high-risk geographical area will not be permitted to enter Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center hospital or any outpatient facility under any circumstances.

If you have any additional questions or need more information about the visitor policy, please speak with your doctor or care team.
