Prepare for your visit

Keeping all visitors safe

Nothing is more important than your safety when you visit Children's Mercy. To reduce the potential spread of respiratory viruses, masks are required for all visitors 2 years of age and older, and all visitors must also be free of illness. Please keep number of visitors as low as possible; Emergency Room and Surgery are restricted to two visitors.

Masks with filters/exhalation valves are not permitted. You may bring your own mask. If you do not have one, a mask will be provided for you.
