Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 13, all U.S. Cleveland Clinic locations will return to open levels of visitation.

As we enter a new phase of the pandemic, there will no longer be screeners, set visiting hours or limits to the number of visitors a patient can have. This will apply to both inpatient and outpatient facilities. However, it’s important to note that ICU settings may have care-specific visitation restrictions. We believe this change will safely allow more people to visit and connect with their loved ones, which benefits our patients.

Important Reminders:

  • Visitors are required to wear masks while inside any Cleveland Clinic facility.
  • Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 can visit a patient no less than 10 days after testing positive or being exposed.
  • Any individual who is sick should not visit.
  • Visitors to patients with COVID-19 must follow these guidelineswhich include wearing a mask, eye protection, gown and gloves.
  • Our Visitor Partnership Pledge remains in effect as we work together for a healing and safe care environment.

Our full visitation policy can be found on our website at
